A Wild Goose Chase Christmas
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!

ABOUT THE BOOK:
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?
The story related in A Wild Goose Chase Christmas is exactly what the title says. When Izzy’s grandmother died, she left Izzy a family quilt along with a note that indicated that the quilt would lead to a treasure. Not sure exactly what the note meant, Izzy put the quilt aside until it seemed that everyone wanted her quilt. One of the people wanting the quilt was Max Logan, a museum curator who claimed that Izzy’s grandmother had given the quilt to him. Despite her misgivings as to Max’s motives, Izzy found herself becoming attracted to the genuinely caring person he seemed to be.
As Izzy and Max worked together to discover the meanings of clues left by her grandmother, one after another complication rose to challenge them. But as they persisted, they and Izzy’s mother and brother found exactly the treasure their grandmother hoped they would find.
A Wild Goose Chase Christmas is a fun read especially suitable for the Christmas season with its message of faith, family and restored relationships. A bit of romance doesn’t hurt either.
