Item description for Tiger Lillie by Lisa Samson...

Fifteen years after the mysterious disappearance of Ted, her childhood sweetheart, gutsy and daring Lillie Bauer--bungee-jumper, book addict, and delightfully offbeat coordinator of extreme high-concept weddings--is ready to find love again.

Publishers Description
Always the Wedding Coordinator, Never the Bride.

Fifteen years after the mysterious disappearance of Ted, her childhood sweetheart, gutsy and daring Lillie Bauer–bungee-jumper, book addict, and delightfully offbeat coordinator of “extreme” high-concept weddings–is ready to find love again. Yet as she boldly but reluctantly braves a disastrous dating scene in her search for a husband, quirky Lillie is caught between two contrasting images of married life: the rich, lifelong partnership shared by her parents and the troubled marriage of her younger sister, Tacy.

Faced with long-buried feelings, fears for Tacy, and concerns about her father's failing health, Lillie finds strength in an unlikely and peculiar community of loved ones, including Cristoff, her epileptic, florist business partner; Pleasance, a sassy African American clothing designer; and Lillie's strong Hungarian Grandma Erzsébet. But when Lillie stumbles across a danger that threatens those she loves most, she will need more than friends and family–she will need a miracle.
“Reading Tiger Lillie is like bungee jumping in a prom dress–breathless, extreme, elegant, a mixture of freefall reflection and being jerked back to heart-stopping reality! I was completely captivated by Lisa Samson's quirky and colorful characters, so tender and down-to-earth, but bold and dangerous when one they love is threatened. You'll never forget Tiger Lillie.”
–Neta Jackson, author of The Yada Yada Prayer Group novels

“Lisa Samson has done it again! A superbly told story that immediately captivated me with its loveable and quirky characters. The intricacies of relationship between two completely different sisters provide an intriguing and captivating read–a story that becomes a real page-turner toward the end! Way to go, Lisa!”
–Melody Carlson, award winning author of Finding Alice, Crystal Lies and Diary of a Teenage Girl series

“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 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

Reviews - What do customers think about Tiger Lillie?

Magnificent  Feb 5, 2007
Like Lisa Samson's other books, this one is alive with multi-layed characters who make you care about who they are as much as where the plot is taking them. The book is voiced by sisters Lillie and Tacy, one outspoken and strong, the other with a voice increasingly haunting as the plot unfolds.

The secondary characters show off Samson's skill as well-- they do not only exist for the sake of the protagonist, but have rich backstories and personalities of their own.

This book, alive with the faceted faith and struggles of real people, is neither trite nor syrupy-- in fact, it is bracing and heartbreaking in places. But the ride is more than worth it.
A breath of fresh air!  Dec 8, 2005
This book knocked my socks off. Ms Samson is an outstanding author of everyday people, with everyday problems and triumphs, but rely on the Lord and each other.

We have Lillie, who is thirty-something and not married yet. She runs a wedding planner type of business. She has a sister, whom unknown to her, things are getting worse every day. Her dad is a priest who is blind and is her mentor.

Will Lillie ever find love? Will Tacy survive her abusive and controlling husband? Read and find out! This book won't disappoint you, however it will NOT end up like you think!
Samson Has Done It Again  Aug 24, 2005
I've been a fan of Lisa Sampson for several years, and Tiger Lillie is now one of my favorites. Lisa has a gift of creating characters so real I find myself praying for them! Very real, unique, fun, and compassionate is how I would tag Tiger Lillie.
I couldn't ask for more  Jan 28, 2005
Mrs. Samson's books always undo me in such a way, that I can't review them exactly, but I must try.

First, there was the language--colors, tastes, textures. Orange personalities and mustard silk sentences, phrases that slip over you like a favorite spread. I tried to write down the quotes, but there quickly became too many to count.

And there was soon too much story to bother with such things, too much humor and heartbreak. Too much truth, sheathed in just enough grace to cover the hard parts until I could take them.

Others have told of the top layer of TIGER LILLIE, a spicy mash sprinkled with the love inherited by the daughter of a blind Episcopalian and the need exploited in her younger sister. It's a tale of sufficient grace, of facing the skeletons, sometimes even the one under our flesh. Between the flamboyant flowers, wonderful gowns and delicious food of the employees of an extreme wedding planning company, rest courageous, kind souls whose collective, quiet love is always on time.

Beneath the story rests a mirror, a glassy sea, allowing the light of Christ to refract between the pages. It is this light that brings me here, breathless, minutes after turning the last page. It is this light that brings me back to Mrs. Samson's books again and again. It is this light that draws me closer, for a better glimpse of Jesus.

Such a fun book  Jan 10, 2005
This was such an excellent book. This book dealt with a woman who was struggling to get her sister and niece out of an
abusive situation.

This book was just about the abusive situation. The book also talked about Lillie's struggles with her love life and about
her quirky set of friends. They were so fun to read about. And I liked the balance in the book, between something so horrible as abuse, but as fun as friends and romance.

I love the humor in the book. I really loved how 6 year old Lillie was envisioning "skeletons in her closet".

Samson creates such unique characters in her books. Many books portray characters who are so glamorous. Samson's characters
may not be the most glamorous, but her characters are everyday people with quirks just like everyone else.

I also loved how she interwove life in communist Hungary into the book, and the story of Lillie's mother's escape from
Hungary. The women in this book are remarkable.

I highly recommend this book. I can't wait for Samson's next book.
