The Majek Family Mysteries

Excellent, amazing story. Well written, engaging characters, interesting, mysterious… . Grunert has intimate knowledge of financial investment institutions and creates a world that draws us in, easily imagining the angst that hits David, and conjures tremendous sympathy/empathy as we root for him.

The Majek Family Mysteries

If you want a story that you can really sink your teeth into, that has believable characters, that makes you feel as if you’re part of the story because of the wonderful writing, then read this book. I was so engrossed in the story that I couldn’t put it down. I loved the fact that this was like a real family….a family that wasn’t perfect but tried to stick together through love and understanding, even though disaster struck. Jeanne Grunert has written an amazingly readable book!
