Ready for a feel good read that will ease you into the Christmas spirit?
Join forty-three-year-old newbie innkeeper Jenny Beckett at the Lakeside Resort on beautiful Heron Lake. Jenny’s dreading Christmas. With almost no cabins booked for the holidays, she’s accidentally made promises on social media about dazzling Christmas festivities happening at the Lakeside Resort. Trouble is, the holidays are fast approaching, Jenny’s not begun to finalize plans, and she keeps running into roadblocks.
Stretched tight, Jenny scrambles to book a decent Santa Claus, a horse-drawn wagon for Currier and Ives-style sleigh rides, and the Christmas choirs she’s so enthusiastically described online. To complicate matters, Mama has a frightening fall, Charlotte and Ashe are at odds about their upcoming wedding, and Jenny’s getting the jitters about marrying and building a cabin with her fiancé, Luke.
When Jenny shares her fears with Luke and her best girlfriends, she starts to feel the wonder of the season. Friends gift her a new vintage camper, Mama and Landis make a startling announcement, and friends and family pitch in to help her deliver the dazzling Christmas she’d promised. Jenny realizes she already has all she needs for a magical Christmas and a happy future.
With cozy romance, classic carols, horse-drawn sleigh rides, and happily ever afters, Christmas joy is always on tap at The Lakeside Resort.

Loved this book! As with the first two, this was an easy read and thoroughly enjoyable! Can't wait for the next book!
“Christmas at Lakeside Resort” is a feel-good, charming and always engaging story about people you want to know and a place you want to visit! I’d call ahead and reserve my spot if I could right now for this upcoming Christmas Season! Since we can’t do that…I suggest you get lost in the land that Susan Schild’s created at Lake Heron called Lakeside Resort. Between the wonderful town, amazing people and absolutely delightful animals I could not put this novella down. I know you will feel the same way! This is part of a series, but I believe you could read this first and then go back to the others! So….Grab this little piece of the holiday joy now….so you can start your celebrations early! I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
I The only thing that disappoints in Susan Schild's Lakeside Resort Series is that once you finish one you have to wait for the next one to be released. As a fan who reads at least a book a day, I wait with bated breath for the next in the series. The latest and greatest in this series is Mistletoe At the Lakeside Resort and it does not disappoint. Again, a story rich in Family, Friends, Fiancé and Fun is filled with the magic of the holiday season, of weddings in the present and the hope of those to come. I hesitate to give to many details which would be spoilers; however, Jenny Beckett is faced with sorting out what is making her put off her own wedding plans with her fiancé Luke, who she met previously in the delightful Frank's Friendly Hardware, who she loves without reservation but a previous marriage and disastrous engagement makes her "gun shy". As well Luke wants to build them a dream cabin as they will have outgrown The Dogwood and Jenny balks. Jenny's best friend Charlotte is having her own issues planning a wedding to her fiancé Ashe dealing not only with her own self-image but that of the witch of a wedding dress store owner. Jenny steps in you'll love how she saves the day and deals with the body shamer. Jenny's mom and stepdad have to make difficult life decisions as Jenny has finally come to grips with the legacy left to her by her father. Susan Schild has done it again bringing in the joys of the Christmas season with the festivities planned for the resort. Susan brings in the local community and you feel a part of it all. It is superbly edited, totally appropriate and just a delight to read and enjoy. You don't want to miss this chapter in the Lakeside Resort saga. I can't wait for June and the Wedding at Lakeside Resort.
