    One thought on “Before The Crash”

    1. This short story was disappointing, since I got very little enjoyment out of reading it. To be fair, it does not require a huge amount of time to get through it, definitely less than 30 minutes, but I felt that there was nothing there that piqued my interest to know more about Melissa and her adventures.The story was fairly predictable, and on top of that, the writing felt kind of flat and forced to me. There was no real flow to the story, and the conversations between the characters were awkwar [...]

    2. This download contained two short stories. I am still trying to figure out if how much the first has to do with the second. But I think that is what the author wanted. The first story is about the very weird way Melissa looses her job. It was told very well. The ending was a complete surprise one of those where your mouth opens. The next story takes place sometime after the first and I believe is the tease to the upcoming book. You are happy for Melissa. I wanted to be happy for her. But a weird [...]

    3. Melissa Morris loved her job. She lived in Manhattan where the most important question was “What do you do?” “If you weren’t in the one percent, you were forever angling towards them.” She had worked eight months to put together ”the most expensive collection of bags ever assembled in one place” to spotlight the women’s clothing boutique where she worked. The grand opening was one day away. A disaster caused her to reexamine herself. What was her self-image? Was it accurate? Did [...]

    4. Okay, so as far as mysterious goes, it didn't get mysterious until the last sentence. The author should have given up more if the hope is to attract more readers. I only got the impression that the character has had a shitty run at life. Pardon my French, but it's true. I understand there's always gonna be an event leading to disaster, but it shouldn't take too long to get to a certain point. I found myself waiting for the part where I would definitely read the other books in the series. Sadly, [...]

    5. I saw this was a free download and decided to give it a try . not cause it was free and short but because I read the author's GoodRead's profile which made me laugh and I thought she'd probably have some good stuff. "She lives in Manhattan with her future ex-husband. She has been 35." The short story itself was good - I guess leading up to the Melissa Morris detective novels. In it, Melissa pretty much gets fired from her job which probably leads her to her detective career and the rest of the n [...]

    6. This was my second Jasmine Schwartz short story and I enjoyed it just as much as the first but I think that some of the problems I had with the first, are similar in this one. I found that the plot was intriguing and really drew me into the story. The characters were well developed and I really enjoyed reading about Melissa again, however, I think that overall the story would benefit from being longer.

    7. I thought this could be more for a short story! Instead I was left disappointed! I do feel like the motive of the short story is really to get a glimpse of this character. Melissa may have promise in other stories!

    8. This story didn't really go anywhere. It would be a nice prelude to something else, but it isn't satisfying on its own.
