A Wild Goose Chase Christmas: Quilts of Love Series - eBook
On My Keeper Shelf!
A Wild Goose Chase Christmas by Jennifer AlLee is just the sort of book I love to curl up with at this time of year. Funny, touching, with memorable characters and a steady infusion of Christmas woven throughout, it's a keeper.
AlLee's plots are always so tight that the pace flows well, when I read her books, I realize I've been lost in the story a lot longer than I intended to be--but they're hard to put down! This book is no exception. The romantic journey between Max and Izzy is sweet, and the supporting characters are beyond enjoyable. And of course, I love the Christmas spirit in this book. Sometimes Christmas-themed books don't have much holiday to them until the very end, but from the start, Izzy and Max are surrounded by decorations, carols, the gift-giving plan of a spunky Grandma before her death, and the True Meaning of the season, which makes for a festive delight.
Thanks to Abingdon for providing a copy of the book for my review.

A Great read for Christmas time or anytime of the
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.

An Endearing Story!
A Wild Goose Chase Christmas is an enchanting tale that will warm your heart! I fell in love with this story on the very first page and loved it even more as I read the last words.
Izzy Fontaine receives a very special gift, a Wild Goose Chase pattern quilt, from her beloved grandmother. Izzy does not understand the gift, or its value, and is surprised when Max Logan appears on her doorstep claiming ownership of the quilt. Max is a local museum curator and claims that Isabella promised him the quilt, to be used in a museum exhibit.
If that isnÃ¢ÂÂt strange enough, notes begin to arrive from unexpected people and places. Soon everyone is on a wild goose chase searching for the treasure that Grandma has alluded to. What they find is something they least expect but need the most!
Jennifer AlLee has written an endearing story that is sure to delight readers! With a wonderful cast of characters, including Bogie, the Jack Russell Terrier, and important lessons beautifully woven throughout, A Wild Goose Chase Christmas is a story you wonÃ¢ÂÂt soon forget!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Abingdon Press. All thoughts expressed are my own and no monetary compensation was received.
