The first part of the book made the main character seem smart and together, but as the book progresses she just gets dumber and dumber. Also nothing is really resolved. I understand that there is a larger plot that is not going to be resolved in this book but you never find out if the person who has been kidnapped survives. Or if the town is okay or if shes going to live there after all of the action happens. I found it very unsatisfying. Also I got very tired of the biblical references. It was fast paced and gripping and not bad but I found myself annoyed that I'd spent so much time reading it.
