“Like sprinkles of paprika on a sea of sour cream, Tiger Lillie’s colorful characters catch the attention and tantalize the taste buds. I read this novel in one sitting, but I’ll not soon forget the cast of flavorful characters–Lillie and Tacy and Christoff and Gordon. Lisa Samson writes with surprising honesty, genuine love, and indefatigable hope. Make time for this one–you’ll love it!”
–Angela Hunt, author of The Awakening
“Many writers in the genre of Christian fiction shy away from characters who stray too far outside ‘safe’ conservative lines. Thankfully, Lisa Samson seems to understand that to breathe life into wonderfully flawed characters is to paint a refreshingly honest and compelling picture of the foibles and follies of the human experience. In Tiger Lillie, she does just that. Brilliantly.”
–Constance Rhodes, founder of FINDINGbalance.com and editor of The Art of Being: Reflections on the Beauty and the Risk of Embracing Who We Are
“Wow! What a book! Strong, courageous characters, compelling storyline, hidden truths that jump out and grab you–all in Lisa Samson’s marvelous and unique voice. Loved it! Loved it!”
–Gayle Roper, author of Winter Winds, Autumn Dreams, Summer Shadows, and Spring Rain
“Nobody writes like Lisa Samson. Not even Lisa Samson! That’s because each of her novels is different, exposing yet another aspect of her literary talent.
See for yourself in Tiger Lillie, a fresh and wonderful addition to her unique body of work.”
–James Scott Bell, Christy Award-Winning author of Breach of Promise and A Certain Truth
“Lillie and Tacy, two sisters brimming with joie de vie, delight and then draw us into their life and death struggle with darkness. Tiger Lillie provokes thought as it tugs the heart.”
–Lyn Cote, author of Winter’s Secret
“Tiger Lillie showcases Lisa Samson’s unique ability to write in-your-face fiction. Her vivid characters reach out and grab, providing a contrast between the self-centered mind and the dedicated heart of those who claim His name. This is her best book yet!”
–Lois Richer, author of Dangerous Sanctuary
“Lisa Samson creates the most wonderful, quirky characters, ones that jump off the page and into your heart. Tiger Lilly kept me up way too late reading. Lisa’s voice is unlike any other writer out there, and she’s addicting. If you haven’t discovered this phenomenal writer yet, you’re in for a treat with Tiger Lilly.”
–Colleen Coble, author of Without a Trace and Beyond a Doubt

Lillie Bauer admittedly a bit plump is in terrific physical shape and is doing well with her florist business. However, her love life seems in the tank as she still moans over her childhood hero and sweetheart Ted, who vanished fifteen years ago just after they graduated from high school. No man has come close when compared to the legendary Ted......................... Lillie worries about her beloved sister Tacy, whose spouse Rawlins McGregor is abusive to her and their young child Hannah. Not sure what to do, Lillie receives help from family, business associates, friends, and Gordon, a new man in her life. Still she believes her sibling and her niece need a miracle to survive the increasingly volatile Rawlins. She wonders whether her prayers to God can be answered through the Temperance Church of the Apostles filter or should she heed the advice of her support group by cutting out the questionable middle man by praying directly and interceding with her sibling¿s family?............................. The tale starts slow, but once the story line boils, readers obtain a deep look at a dysfunctional family, the role of the church, and the belief that there are no atheists in the fox hole. When Lillie realizes the crisis has become dangerous, she turns to God and prays for a miracle especially for the two McGovern females. Told in rotating chapters by the two sisters, fans will see how love and belief offer solace when tragedy occurs............................. Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?

Lillie Bauer, coordinator of Extreme Weddings, also leads an extreme life. She loves bungee jumping and her family. And at long last, she is ready to fall in love again. She is still haunted by the disappearance of her first love, Teddy, but she is ready to more forward. ..................... Lillie is caught between two versions of love, her parents' solid marriage and her sister's abusive one. Lillie finally learns the extent of the abuse. Then, using her strong Hungarian roots and her strong faith in God, Lillie goes to the furthest extreme to save her sister and niece. ..................... *** This book starts out pretty slow. However, it quickly picks up the pace and grabs the reader in a firm hold. This novel is a good read for a lazy afternoon, but it is a real tear jerker, so keep the tissues at hand. Soft hearts beware! ***Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
