Review: Secrets Unveiled by Sheshena Pledger

The Harris family is one of America’s most ruthless crime families. It’s a family of stone cold killers with secrets. The Miller family is seemingly an average family with no secrets but when Nick Miller’s father is killed Nick learns that his family has secrets too.

The story is told from the point of view of both the protagonist and antagonist. At first it was very disconcerting and it would take me a few pages to realize who was talking but once I got more into the book it was easier based on who the characters were talking to. One other thing that bothered me was the grammar. In a few instances words weren’t used correctly such as meat instead of meet and when I ran across them it was very distracting. I guess that’s just one of the downfalls of a self published book.

The writing was real gritty and street but it played well with the story. The characters are a bit unlikable but this also works for the storyline. This was not my typical read but found it an interesting step out of my favorite genres.

I really hate when I come across stuff like that! It makes me want to correct it and then I get pulled out of the story. The cover isn't all that interesting but the author's name is!

This book sounds like it's got promise. I find bad editing very distracting too.
