Thanks to Author and Music Lover Susanne Dunlap, we’re giving away TWO novels this week: The Musician’s Daughter and Hardcover Copy of Anastasia’s Secret.
The Musician’s Daughter is a young adult novel that is set in 18th Century Vienna. It all begins when fifteen-year-old Theresa Maria Shurman discovers her father, an acclaimed violinist, was murdered and his violin stolen. When the conductor of the orchestra, Franz Josef Haydn offers her a job, Theresa gets a chance of a lifetime to investigate her father’s murder. She quickly learns that her father wasn’t simply a musician but a spy investigating the Hungarian lords and persecuted Gypsie camps. She uncovers blackmail, extortion, courage, and love as she dives deeper and deeper into a world of mystery.
Anastasia’s Secret surrounds the mystery of the Romanov family’s final days and Russia’s last princess. As the grand duchesse, Anastasia grows up in a beautiful palace surrounded by her siblings and czar father. When the Bolsheviks seize control, her family is exiled to Siberia. While they await their fate, Anastasia falls in love with a young guard, Sasha whom she knows from childhood. Will the love they share be enough to save her family?
The Musician’s Daughter is a thrilling tale of mystery and romance that will pull at the very core of your heart. In Anastasia’s Secret, Susanne Dunlap brings to life Anastasia and the Romanoff family in a way never before seen.

1) What is your favorite musical instrument?
Examples include violin, flute, piano, drums, etc. For me? While I played the flute for two years as a teenager, my father originally taught me to play on the piano at a young age. Unfortunately, I had little patience in learning longer and more complex songs beyond Three Blind Mice and gave it up. Now as an adult, I gravely regret never learning how to play the piano as it is ironically, my favorite instrument.
