Can you read this story if you haven’t read Hurricane Crimes?

Absolutely! Since Hurricane Crimes is solely in Beth’s POV, some of the mystery and suspicion around Donovan may not be as mysterious after you read the prologue, but it won’t diminish the danger, the attraction, or Hurricane Sabrina’s strength. The Crime Before the Storm, because it is a short story, is a great introduction for new readers curious about the Disaster Crimes series, and I hope it’ll get you wanting to read Hurricane Crimes (a novella) to find out what happens next.

Why did I write this prequel?

After Hurricane Crimes was published, readers expressed wanting to be able to read Donovan’s side of what happened before he crashed into the tree in front of Beth’s house. In Seismic Crimes, I had originally written flashback scenes in Donovan’s POV to show what led up to Hurricane Crimes. However, my editor didn’t like, so I used Donovan’s interrogation to share what I wanted readers to know. It worked and was the right choice for Seismic Crimes, but when I had to take out those flashback scenes, I was sad. I still really wanted readers to get his story in his voice and to meet Ryan, however briefly. So, I kept those scenes and thought I’d share them one day. That day has come! With Beth and Donovan’s story coming to a close with Frozen Crimes (Disaster Crimes 5), it is the perfect time to backtrack and show the beginning. The beginning beginning. Where everything started…
