After the funeral, things began to go crazy for her, when a mysterious stranger offers her a ride on his motorcycle to get her away from the trouble she faces. Madelyn accepts the proposition and heads off from her pursuers. As the chase intensifies, she finds out that the man who she rode with is Jake Nolan, a man who wanted to finish the legacy of finding Mozart's original music sheets who also had a troubled past in a previous relationship he was in. The man who wanted to find them, Leon Von Füssen, wanted to add Mozart's sheets to his private collection at any cost. The Von Füssen family had almost gone bankrupt in the 1960s, but Leon was able to bring immense wealth back to the family. His drive ruined his relationship at the time, and wasn't going to allow Madelyn, or any other woman, stand in his way again.
As the suspenseful adventure continues, we see the reasons that motivate Madelyn, Jake and Leon do whatever is necessary to meet their goals. Along the way, Madelyn and Jake become more than platonic, or so she thinks when Leon presents himself as a possible candidate for her affection. The ending becomes enthralling when Leon takes Madelyn to the ice caves of Werfen in Bavaria, where he plans on getting the authentic Mozart music sheets and maybe even something special with Madelyn too. Things change drastically for all three of them that left me in disbelief! It's an ending which is very sweet but unexpected.
The Counterfeiter's Daughter has a ton of details throughout the novel that are accurate to the point, from the freeways of Southern California to Lufthansa 453 actually being a flight from Los Angeles to Munich and even the Autobahn system of Germany. The writer did an astounding job of showing the three main characters plus the supporting characters too. The scenery can easily be imagined, and all of the German food listed is something you can picture eating as you read this book! SO many references are made to Mozart besides the fake sheets, you can see songs such as Mozart's Sonata No11, Sontata No5 in G and more. We even see Madelyn visit the Mozart museum in Austria to et an upfront view of his work.
There's an additional bonus if you know German, since there's a lot of short phrases of the language used in this book. One other important aspect to note is the use of forgiveness and Biblical quotes within a Christian point of view by multiple characters in the book, just in case that is not your cup of tea.
Overall, The Counterfeiter's Daughter is a outstanding book which you should read, especially if you are into suspense, romance, Christian refrences and Mozart!
Here’s some things you get.
Cute German dresses. Swoon. Maddie is thoroughly lovable!
Natural wonders of the world
Fancy 5 star penthouses.
Faith. I’m not much on this one But it’s handled with a light and non-judgmental hand.
So packed with iconic places and historical throw backs. Classic film references. New Audi’s alongside classic cars and bikes.
Might have been pulling for the “villain” and The author handles his story in a way that thoroughly satisfied me.
I cried sad tears and happy tears and feel like I have had my own adventure. Bravo! The app won’t let me give an extra star or I would!
The descriptive setting of Bavaria helped satisfy my travel bug in a year when Covid disrupted our vacation plans, and the art historian in me loved the role a valuable artifact had in the novel's plot. I also enjoyed the romantic elements. I won't spoil the ending, but I will say Madelyn has a happy resolution in more ways than one. The romance here is wholesome. This is a great summer read.
Although I usually don't read romance, I enjoyed this book a lot. Particularly, because Bavaria is my homeland. I spent my childhood in the region around Lake Chiemsee and was delighted to see how well the author described it. I almost felt like at home!
I highly recommend this book to all fans of Christian Romance, as Maddie's journey is not only a journey to herself and her past, but to faith she had thought lost.
A fun read which makes you want to take a journey to Bavaria right now!

Following the journey of Madelyn Brighton, who travels to Germany for a funeral, the story takes several twists and turns centred around an historic musical artefact and the competing motives and affections of Jake and Leon.
It's not my usual read, and the sometimes intense and extensive description and religious references and themes were a bit much for me at times, but I still enjoyed what is a great story in a gorgeous setting. You can really see the sights and even smell the pastry in this one!
Would happily recommend to anyone looking for a wholesome romantic adventure with Christian themes.
