A Wild Goose Chase Christmas by Jennifer AlLee

This week, the

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance

is introducing

A Wild Goose Chase Christmas

(Abingdon Press - November 2012)


Jennifer AlLee


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?


I love Christmas novels. I could read them all year long. I've had A Wild Good Chase Christmas on my wish list for quite some so I'm excited it's finally reached publication.

I love reading about the history of quilt patterns and I love how Jennifer AlLee tied the Wild Goose Chase theme into the fabric of this story, not just with the quilt itself. Grandmother Isabella makes a great unseen character in this book with all her pre-mortem planning to make the search for the clues an adventure that Izzy could hardly resist. Romance blossoms as Max and Izzy are thrown together in search of the answers behind the quilt's making, much to the chagrin of Izzy's family. Will Max and Izzy's relationship be ripped beyond repair by the tension this family friction creates, and if so, will they be able to patch things up in time to find the true treasure her grandmother has left behind? To find out, be sure to pick up a copy of A Wild Goose Chase Christmas to enjoy this holiday season.

My thanks to Abingdon Press for generously providing a copy for review.
