"A Wild Goose Chase Christmas" By Jennifer AlLee"

A Wild Goose Chase Christmas
By Jennifer AlLee

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?

To read an excerpt go here  :

“A Wild Goose Chase Christmas” By Jennifer AlLee gets five stars from Me. This novel is Book 2 in the "Quilts of Love" series, but can be read as a stand alone. I was hooked from the
front page.
   This story is a story about the greatest treasure in life which is faith and love. This story centers around Thanksgiving and Christmas but it is a story that can be enjoyed year round!
  Izzy’s grandmother dies and then a elderly gentleman shows up at her house with a gift from her grandmother. It is a quilt. And then Max shows up looking for his grandfather. Then the mystery thickens for Max claims that Isabella, the grandmother, promised him the quilt. Mysterious notes and clues keep showing up for them to find out what is so special about this Wild Goose Quilt.
  Almost from the beginning, Max and Lizzy are attracted to each other but are afraid to let the other know. Max wants the quilt for an exhibit but Lizzy’s mother and brother are against her letting him borrow it. They are sure it is very valuable and it is but is it monetary?
  This novel is about a family that has relationships problems and misunderstanding, and Isabella wants the quilt to bring healing to the family and wants Izzy and Max to fall in love! Does her plan work?
I was given a free copy of this book by Abingdon Press Fiction  for my honest review to be in the 2013 Christmas Blog Tour!
  Interview Questions
1   Will you tell us your favorite Christmas traditions?
      When I was young, my mom knit a Christmas stocking for me, with my name on it. I've hung it up every year, and now my son has one, too. He's twenty, but we still hang up those stockings every year.

2   What is your favorite Christmas memory?
     I was in kindergarten and I was an angel in the school Christmas program. I was so excited about my white angel robe and my shiny, gold tinsel halo!

3   What is your favorite least memory of a certain Christmas?
      One year, when I was about seven, I very carefully opened all of my presents and then I taped them closed again. That was the most depressing Christmas ever, because there were no surprises! I never did that again.
