I liked the story, but I really wanted to love it. The potential was there, but at times I felt like I was missing some important piece of information that was crucial to understanding what was happening.
The whole back story with Dan and Rebecca played a huge role in their relationship, but we only got brief glimpses of that. And their romance had me scratching my head at times. She hates him, he's cautious. Suddenly their engaging in a sexual relationship and just as quickly she's back to hating him (and in my opinion unjustly so) but he's in love with her. I like a little drama, but this was a bit much.
Then with the cult, that was so much a part of the small town, it was like there should have been some kind of sign of what was happening with so many members of the community being involved. To go 3/4 of the way through the book and then find out just about everyone Rebecca trusted was involved kind of made you wonder who this was missed.
As I said in the beginning, I did like the story. The cult storyline was interesting and does make you wonder if you know your neighbors and friends as well as you think you do.
