Amy Stewart at Boswell
Amy Stewart's visited Milwaukee several times over the years. Shes been at the Boerner Botanical Gardens to discuss Wicked Plants. She deconstructed drinks from The Drunken Botanist at Great Lakes Distillery. But one place she's never been in Milwaukee is at Boswell Book Company. And to us, thats particularly crazy, partly because we love her Kopp Sisters historical series, and even more so because she actually owns a bookstore, Eureka Books in California.

We're celebrating the paperback release of the third book in the series, Miss Kopps Midnight Confessions, and pre-celebrating the September 11 release of #4, Miss Kopp Just Wont Quit. And speaking of things that wont quit, we're celebrating the success of the first two books in the series, Girl Waits with Gun and Lady Cop Makes Trouble. So mostly, we're just celebrating.
In Miss Kopp Just Wont Quit, Amy Stewart continues to brilliantly conjure the life and times of the real Constance Kopp. After a year on the job, New Jersey's first female deputy sheriff has collared criminals, demanded justice for wronged women, and gained notoriety nationwide for her exploits. But on one stormy night, a prisoner escapes and everything falls apart. Since Fall 1916 is a high-stakes election year, any move she makes could jeopardize Sheriff Heath's future -- and her own. And although Constance is not on the ballot, her controversial career makes her the target of political attacks.
