Six months ago, a hit-and-run driver changed David Majek’s life forever. Now he struggles to raise his three sons alone after the death of his beloved wife, Cathy, and manage the financial empire founded by his outlandish father. One night, a mysterious stranger appears, and the next morning, $100,000 is missing from David’s bank account. As David pursues the stranger and delves into the mystery surrounding his wife’s death, he discovers a tangled web of deceit, lies, and betrayal that threatens to shatter his close-knit family forever.

What Readers Are Saying About I Believe You

“This is the kind of novel that would make a blockbuster movie. So realistic. So believable. Amazing.” – Frank Reman, author of Elijah

“A heart touching mystery. David struggles with the sorrow of the loss of his cherished wife and being a single parent. Even though he is quite wealthy, the demands of his company and children’s needs are a real juggling act. Throw in a pending heart attack and his brother’s mysterious behaviour and you have a mystery that keeps you reading. Add the light touch of a gentle ghost, not much, just enough to make you believe and you won’t want to put it down. This is a very nice light read!” – Dixie, 5 stars, Amazon review.

What Readers Are Saying About “I Believe You”


From author Wendy Welch:

“You sympathize with the bereaved David and his sons, get a kick out of his interaction with his sister Eva (who is keeping the house afloat via her maid service) and watch the elusive woman Turquoise slowly land like a butterfly in their midst. For all that it’s a thriller, the book turns less on unexpected whodunit than on the development of why. You know me, gentle readers: character-driven plots are my thing. So I can totally say I believe in I Believe You.”

From blogger Barb at SFO Mom:

“I don’t usually read suspense novels, preferring fare that is more character-driven. But I found that David Majek’s character was quite well-developed in Jeanne Grunert’s novel I Believe You, and it didn’t take long for me to get drawn into the story. The various mysteries come to be connected in a plausible way, and the pacing was not so fast that you couldn’t get acquainted with the characters.”
