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.
on October 15, 2016I love a happy ending, Normally I would not want to put a favorite book down until I finished it in one sitting. But this book I wanted to savor as it is so descriptive, well written and the material well researched. The author has a wonderful way with words. I get the impression that, because of the last line of the story, that there might be a sequel?? I hope so! Definitely recommend this book if you’re a fan of mysteries.
What Readers Are Saying About “I Believe You”
on November 27, 2016Although it is not the typical genre that I read, I enjoyed this story. The characters felt real and genuine. I felt sympathetic toward the main character and his sons, especially the deaf son. I appreciated that recognition that life and relationships are messy and the distinction between good and evil is not always as clear as the movies make them seem.
“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.”
