A Wild Goose Chase Christmas by Jennifer AlLee

Although- as I've confessed in the past- I usually don't like holiday themed novels, I must admit that this was another Christmas themed story that I really enjoyed. (There have been a few of those lately!) A Wild Goose Chase Christmas is part of the Quilts of Love series from Abingdon. I've been reading and reviewing quite a few of these this past year.

 Here is the synopsis:
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?

This one has a contemporary setting. The characters are both interesting and likable. I won't give a spoiler, but I can definitely relate to Izzy- our main character- and the way she responds to the situations around her. The mystery that Izzy's grandmother left to her and Max, the handsome stranger, provided intrigue to keep me guessing. Izzy's somewhat rocky relationship with her family provoked sympathy from me and brought some humor to the story.

I can definitely recommend this one. Despite the fact that it is a Christmas themed read, I really enjoyed it. (I seem to be saying that quite a bit lately!) I give it 5 stars and a G rating for content.
