"A Wild Goose Chase Christmas" by Jennifer AlLee

About this 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?”

I really enjoyed this one! The characters seemed very developed & the romance was pretty light. It was overall a good story & plot with a touch of mystery! :)
