Split apart by the war effort, the indomitable Kopp sisters take on saboteurs and spies and stand up to the Army brass as they face the possibility that their life back home will never be the same.
The U.S. has finally entered World War I. Constance, the oldest of the Kopp sisters, is doing intelligence work on the home front for the Bureau of Investigation while youngest sister and aspiring actress, Fleurette, travels across the country entertaining troops with song and dance. Meanwhile, at an undisclosed location in France, Norma oversees her thwarted pigeon project for the Army Signal Corps. When her roommate, a nurse at the American field hospital, is accused of stealing essential medical supplies, the intrepid Norma is on the case to find the true culprit.
Determined to maintain their sometimes-scratchy family bonds across the miles, the far-flung sisters try to keep each other in their lives. But the world has irrevocably changed—when will the sisters be together again?
Told through letters, Dear Miss Kopp weaves the stories of real-life women a century ago, proving once again that “any novel that features the Kopp sisters is going to be a riotous, unforgettable adventure”

Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC! This review is based on my honest opinion.
This is the sixth book of the Kopp sisters book series. I haven’t read the first five books so as a result, I was a bit confused about the characters but that was completely my fault. The story takes place when U.S. enters into First World War in 1918, just before the war ended. The story is based on real life events of Kopp sisters and is through the letters and telegrams exchanged between the sisters, friends and colleagues. Constance is set to find the spies and is working for Bureau of Investigations, Norma is sent to Langres, France during WWI and her roommate, Angie is a nurse working in the America hospital and there’s Fleurette and Bessie. Overall, I liked the style of the story telling which was actually unique way of telling a story and really enjoyed the bond between the sisters and friends.
This book worth five stars in my opinion and I am willing to read the previous books too!
