Soul Snare: A Clare James Art Adventure by Charlene Yoder

Clare James never intended to do more than visit museums and sketch the work of centuries of artists who had come before her when she signed up for a study abroad program in London, England.

However, after her travel companion’s belongings are nearly blown up under suspicious circumstances, she arrives at her flat where her new roommate bullies her at knifepoint. Exhausted and scared, she is quickly disillusioned about her reasons for coming overseas.

And then Lizbeth, a friend from the United States whose mother is British, shows up with a mysterious tale of a stolen family heirloom––a painting so small it could be hidden in the sole of a shoe. This painting could prove the existence of a lost royal heir and close the doors of one of London’s largest churches forever.

Intrigued like a modern Nancy Drew, she goes from decoding messages by candlelight in the dome of St. Paul’s cathedral to avoiding capture by doodling caricatures of guests amidst the glitz of a grand country ball.

In her quest to find the truth, can Clare stay connected to the unique voice God has given her to share her testimony with the other students in the program and solve the meaning of the miniature painting’s existence without compromising her beliefs?

I can see why it was first place out of 500 and some books to get published. I was on the author's website, very interesting. Keeps you turning the pages. I'm going to read the second one when it comes out.

Enjoyed this mystery. The girls get themselves into hot water and have to make some serious decisions about their faith too. It's not always easy to find a good Christian mystery and this was one.

A goody two shoes meets her worst nightmares and has to paint a forgery to boot! Pretty entertaining. I laughed out loud several times and was definitely not expecting it to go where it went. Takes it's time, but really ramps it up as you go.

My new go-to gift book. It's perfect for a wide range of ages and it shares what I believe in a real way.

I just finished this mystery laden book and loved it.  It was so inspiring to read about a young college art student far away from home and yet one who remained so grounded in her faith.  Clare James meets many people different from herself and some who were very shady but she continued to let God shine through in her actions and the sharing of her faith despite everything that happens to her.  She never let fear overcome her because she put her whole trust in God.  The book not only kept me wondering what was going to happen next but I found myself wanting to be more like Clare.  Her strong belief and trust in God was contagious.  Charlene Yoder is an apiring new author that is making a difference in people that reads her book.  I look forward to reading her next book that will be coming out in the winter of 2015 entitled "Soul Stain".

A GREAT read! You're right there with Clare in London. I couldn't put it down until I was done. I will be giving this book as a gift to my friends.

Lots of characters make this a complex story. Enjoyed the history. Found the author's website and it gave me more info about the art in the book, which is always a plus because I have no idea what this stuff would look like. That was helpful! Enjoyed the story.
