Stewart has used her unerring research skills and sharp wit to elevate the standard of historic fiction to an entirely new level. I loved book one in the series, Girl Waits With Gun, and was hoping that book two would be up to the challenge. To me, Lady Cop Makes Trouble is even better than the first book. There is more action, so much detail and such a high level of historic accuracy that reading feels like traveling in a time machine.
The plot is taken from the headlines of the time and in doing so lends a feeling of authenticity to this historic fiction detective book. Stewart opens a window into the early 1900s and beckons the reader to climb through and into another world. Descriptive, detailed, exacting dialogue and excellent character interaction and development all converge to create an enthralling book.
Moore's narration is spot on once again. Her use of pauses, sighs and her precise tone and timing really captures the no nonsense feel of the era and the characters she is voicing. Her skilled delivery makes listening a pleasure.
I really am looking forward to book three--I can't wait to see what happens next. Recommended if you enjoy historic fiction with quirky characters, some funny bits and a slice of life from another era. I loved it.

Highly recommend! What a great story. I'm hoping for a third in the series as I am left with only just a few developments I'd love to see :) , but for the most part - everything was wrapped up very nicely! Would be great for a book club choice as there is mystery wrapped up in the plot. Exceptional narrator! Will be seeking out more of both ladies' works. Thank you!
