Girl Waits with Gun by Amy Stewart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Enjoyable romp through 1914 rural New York--the Kopp sisters are thrown into the middle of a shitstorm when their buggy is hit by a car of hoodlums. All Constance Kopp wants to do is to collect the $50 from the man who hit them, but instead he launches a threatening campaign of bricks, gunshots, and extortion against the family. But Constance doesn't cower--she's six feet tall, and been through a lot of problems in her 35 spinster years--she's up for the challenge. Love how this is based on a true story, and readers will cheer for the Kopp sisters to win in court and in life. I'm looking forward to reading Book #2 about how Constance becomes a deputy sheriff!
