The Story

Izzy Fontaine is in a tailspin after the death of her beloved grandmother.  And then deliveries of “surprises” from her grandmother start turning up.  There are clues to a mysterious Wild Goose Chase pattern quilt.  As the story unfolds Izzy discovers that the quilt is a family heirloom being passed down from generation to generation in her family.  Why didn’t her grandmother tell her about the quilt before her death?  And why does Max Logan, a Pioneer Museum curator think that Izzy’s grandmother promised the quilt to him?

Izzy finds that her grandmother’s Wild Goose Chase might be leading her down a path that is good for not only her faith but her love life as well!

The Author


Besides being a writer, Jennifer AlLee is a wife and mom. She lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, with her family.  She says with a sense of humor,”My family has learned how to enjoy the fabulous buffets here without severely impacting our waistlines. God is good!”   Since 1996, Jennifer has published numerous short stories, devotions and plays. Active in church drama ministries, it’s another passion of hers. Her first novel, The Love of His Brother (November 2007, Five Star Publishers), was followed by The Pastor’s Wife (February 2010, Abingdon Press). Two more books are scheduled from Abingdon, The Mother Road (April 2012) and A Wild Goose Chase Christmas (November 2012), book two in the new Quilts of Love series.

My Take

I loved this book – I couldn’t put it down.  I fell in love with the main character, Izzy, and couldn’t wait to see what would happen to her next.  There was humor, emotion, family love, and romance that kept me turning pages and wishing I could read it straight through!  Although it takes place during the holidays, this is a fun read any time and shouldn’t be thought of as a strictly Christmas book.

Disclosure: I was sent the book for review.


  1. 1

    The older women in our family know how to make quilts and tried to teach some of us younger women. It is very difficult and time-consuming. I cross stitch Paula Vaughn’s Quilts From The Bible and Quilts Of All Seasons. They take me about three months to sew. That’s as close as I’ll ever come to quilts:)))

  2. 2

    Yes, I have quilts my Grandmother made.

  3. 3

    I don’t have any quilts, but I have several furniture pieces that are family heirlooms.

    Anita Yancey says:

    I have a quilt that my husband’s grandmother made when she was a girl.

  5. 5

    There is a silver serving set that has been handed down in my family for generations. Right now, I have it, and hope to eventually (in many, many years!) to have a daughter and pass it on to her.

  7. 7

    The quilts we had all fell apart years ago.They were made in the 1800s. My neighbor made one for my son and we/he still have that one. It has hot air balloons on it and tucked into one of them is a tiny kitten. I have it put away so it doesn’t get ruined by all of our pets.

    Not really. I had a blanket from my Grandmother as a baby but that has disintegrated since then. My Mom does knit a lot though. Every Christmas someone in the family gets a new scarf or blanket from her.
