This is a short, well written prequel to "In Too Deep". It is done in journal-entry style, hence the short, choppy sentences that some reviewers didn't seem to understand and complained about. It is similar in style to the entries on Krentz's web site.

"The Scargill Cove Casefiles" was an amusing little treat for those who are already familiar with the Arcane Society and Fallon Jones. I can understand why those not familiar with the series gave it bad reviews, because it does really work best for those who already know the story line and characters. For those of us already addicted to the Arcane Society, it was a nice bonus. For anyone else, this is not the best introduction to Krentz's excellent work. Start with one of the earliest full-length books to capture the flavor of this exceptionally good series.

Loved this...short...to the point. Just like someone putting down their thoughts as they had them. I journal daily so I enjoy the one or two sentence paragraphs used here, it lets your mind 'fill in the blanks'. A great back story for the introduction of Isabella Valdez. Very impressed with all the information contained in a 15-20 minute read.

This is the twitter story that was written from Fallon's point of view. For those that read it already, it does have an excerpt from Copper Beach at the end. For those that didn't read it on twitter, it is written in short paragraphs, and it is a short story. It's a fun read though, and I am happy to have it on my Kindle now.

When the new owner of the bookstore in Fallon Jones' home town asks for help with a spirit haunting the store, Jones' patterning talent - and penchant for conspiracies - is going to lead Fallon to a deeper discovery than the how the body ended up locked in the vault in the basement.

A freebie for avid Arcane Society fans who might have missed this in it's previous incarnation, this is the first time published but the content is not new. The Scargill Cove Case Files is a collection of Twitter tweets for Fallon Jones - yes, Fallon Jones (Arcane Society) has his own Twitter account (lest you think me an extreme fan girl I stumbled on this during the marketing campaign for In Too Deep: Book One of the Looking Glass Trilogy (An Arcane Society Novel) there is another set of Tweets to go with that book).

Scargill Cove Case Files - not surprisingly - read like a bunch of tweets, the result was choppy and consequently it was not very engaging - so personally, I thought that this was more on the ok side. For those readers who aren't already familiar with Krentz' psychic paranormal romances looking to give the Arcane Society series a try, there really isn't enough here to get a feel for the series written by Krentz and her two alter egos (Krentz writes Arcane Society present, but also writes as Arcane society Past as Amanda Quick, and Arcane Society Future as Jayne Ann Castle.) But since these tweets are set right before Running Hot (Arcane Society, Book 5), fans with a good memory might get a kick out of the references to events from that book and the price was right.

There was one short story then a review of a new book. Not worth the time. Should have got a copy from the library before deciding to buy.

I could not read it. I tried to delete it but couldn't. This is NOT worthy of her. I am usually a fan of the Arcane Society's modern day books, but not this one.

This is not a book. It is a jumbled rambling and a sales pitch. Even if you know the stories, a waste of time.

It is a great little snapshot to the arcane series. I loved the note style of the book and since I read the other books in the series, it made me want to read more.
