About the Author

USA Today Bestselling Author Magdalena Scott writes sweet romance and romantic women's fiction. A lifelong resident of Small Town America, she invites readers into her world to find out what’s hidden just below the surface of those tiny dots barely visible on the map. Romance, mystery, and the journey to be one's best self are all part of a day in her neighborhood. Readers have commented that they'd like to move to the imaginary towns Magdalena writes about, which she takes as high praise indeed. Magdalena is a practicing minimalist, having downsized from a 3,000 square foot house to a studio apartment, where her Giant Closet continues to resist taming. When not writing at home, she loves to travel--carry on baggage only--and is always pleasantly surprised at the kindness of strangers.

Read an Excerpt

I'm addicted. And I know this. It's been going on for years. Since elementary school, in fact. Yet, mostly I've kept it rather quiet. The people closest to me know, of course. Mother and Dad, my two best friends, Kate and Barb. And Dean knew. He hadn't realized it when we were dating, but when we'd been married just a short time, I could not hide it from him. Dean hadn't exactly approved, but he also hadn't made an issue of it.

It simply wasn't discussed. Ever.

Of course, there's no discussing anything with Dean anymore. He was killed in a freak accident on our eighteenth wedding anniversary, poor thing.

That's the day everything changed for me. Suddenly, I was on my own for the first time ever. Just little me.

Well, just me and my thoughts.

Or rather, just me, my thoughts, and my addiction. No steadying influence to keep me grounded. It didn't take long to give in completely. And I don't know of any twelve-step programs for it. Not that I'd take part in one. You see, I don't regret my addiction.

I'm addicted to writing. That may seem silly, but it's serious. I finally realized just how serious--when I discovered I was writing the story of my life...

Although this is the fourth book in Magdalena Scott’s Serendipity, Indiana series, it is the first I have read. Books in this collection can easily be read as stand-alone novels. Widow Alice Williams is an aspiring author. She attends a library book sale and is surprised when she returns home to find a leather bound blank book included with those she purchased. She later goes to a movie with friends that stars the handsome actor Robert Diamond. Little does she know how that book will impact both her life and his. This story drew me in quickly. It is a sweet romance with a thread of the paranormal running through – a thread that ties the story together. Because of this aspect, not everything is grounded in real life. If you want everything to be “real world,” then don’t bother to pick it up. If a little other-worldliness is to your liking, then grab a copy as fast as you can. There is plenty of the normal world including a taste of small town life and relationships between friends. While I usually read more realistic stories, I find that an occasional change is refreshing. “The Blank Book” certainly was for me. I fully anticipate reading more of this series. I received a signed paperback copy directly from the author as a contest prize without any promise of writing a review. However, I was so intrigued by the storyline that I bumped it to the top of my reading list. Any opinions expressed are my own.
