A Wild Goose Chase Christmas

This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance introduces

A Wild Goose Chase Christmas from Abingdon Press (November 2012) by Jennifer AlLee

ANGIE'S TAKE: What a treat to be able to read and review books in the Quilts of Love Books line! Each one is so different and yet all of them have the same quilt theme. (I'll tell you here that I wrote #6 coming out in April, A Healing Heart, but not one of us collaborated. I had no clue what Jennifer AlLee's book was about until our editor put us all together in an email loop to chatter. But then I still had no idea what Jennifer's writing style would be like or how her story would unfold. She has a cast of interesting characters with great personalities. I've completely enjoyed reading A Wild Goose Chase Christmas. How lucky am I to be writing in this series with her? I think you'll enjoy it too. Pop over to to find the other books in the series.

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?
