A Wild Goose Chase Christmas by Jennifer AiLee
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?
My Take: This book was a delight from beginning to the end. It is part of the Quilts of Love series but can be read alone. It is center around the holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas but you could read this anytime of the year and still love it.
Like with a lot of families now a days Izzy's family is bit dysfunctional. they come together because they think that the quilt the their grandmother left will somehow lead to monetary gain. There is a mystery that keeps them looking for the treasure. And of course there is romance and all the mixups that many times go along with that. This book will give you that bit of peace you may need during this time of year when you just need to be carried away for a short time to unwind and decompress. This book is just the ticket you need.
I received a review copy of this book from Abingdon Press ins exchange for my honest opinion.
