Perfect Little Town - Blake Crouch

Jessica and Ron Stahl planned to spend their Christmas vacation in Aspen. On the way, they stop in the small town of Lone Cone to do some shopping and see the sights. Things are going well until they're told the roads are snowed in and they have to spend the night in the town. Little did they know what was in store for them...

 

This was a quick, easy read by Crouch that alternates between keeping you on the edge of your seat and cringing at the horror of what Jessica and Ron go through.  While I would have liked a little more story on some things (why a bear?), the rest of the story was solid enough to make this a worthwhile read. Please be aware that the book ends at 50% and the second half is an interview with Crouch and excerpts from some of his other books.
