Wild Goose Chase Christmas by Jennifer AlLee

A cute love story about the importance of family and legacy!  This is part of a series called Quilts of Love, written by different authors and all featuring quilts. 

Izzy Fontaine's grandmother has just died and she has inherited a Wild Goose Chase pattern quilt passed down through generations of her family, along with a cryptic message about a possible treasure.  Her mother and brother normally drive her crazy and their interest in the treasure only makes her relationship with them more strained. But someone has a prior claim to it, Max Logan, a museum curator who was promised the quilt by her grandmother for an exhibit.  He was told there were diaries from the women who worked on the quilt and as they try to figure out where her grandmother hid them, they start to fall for each other. But can she really trust his interest in her or is he just after the quilt too?

This was a light read about knowing what a real treasure is and loving your family no matter how they act.  Izzy had to put up with quite a lot and I liked her character and the way she depended on God to deal with her family.  I also liked that we saw what the underlying reason was for the strained relationship between her grandmother and mother, and her mother and herself.  A satisfying ending and a cute Christmas story!
