A Wild Good Chase Christmas by Jennifer AlLee

A Wild Goose Chase Christmas
Abingdon Press (November 2012)

A Word from Jennifer:

As I look back on my life, it's interesting to see where God's taken me, and where I took myself that God pulled me out of. I finally got back to writing, the dream of my heart. Since 1996, I've published numerous short stories, devotions and plays. I've also been active in church drama ministries, another passion of mine. My first novel, The Love of His Brother (November 2007, Five Star Publishers), was followed by The Pastor's Wife (February 2010, Abingdon Press) and The Mother Road (April 2012). A Wild Goose Chase Christmas is book two in the new Quilts of Love series.

Besides being a writer, I am a wife and mom. Living in Las Vegas, Nevada, my family has learned how to enjoy the fabulous buffets here without severely impacting our waistlines. God is good!

Upon her grandmother's death, Izzy Fontaine finds herself in possession of a Wild Goose Chase pattern quilt that supposedly leads to a great treasure.

Of course, once the rest of the family finds out about the "treasure map," they're determined to have a go at the treasure themselves. And, if that weren't enough, Max Logan, a local museum curator, contacts Izzy and says that Grandma Isabella promised him the quilt.

What is it about this quilt that makes everyone want it? Is Izzy on a wild goose chase of her own, or a journey that will lead her to the treasure her grandmother intended?

Heidi Says . . . I don’t know why, but I often don’t set my expectations very high when it comes to these “series” of books written by various authors.  However, this particular series, with the quilt patterns featured on the  covers, really appealed to me. 

I have to say that I really enjoyed this book.  The characters were all well-thought-out and believable.  I could definitely relate to some of the family “issues”.  Of course, I was cheering for a happy ending (aka love match). 

I won’t tell you what the outcome is.  It’s a Christmas story, after all, and this is the perfect time to add it to your book list!
