Get ready to journey to Alaska in Christy Barritt's latest series, True Crime Junkies. Just the Nicest Person, book one in the series, is an intriguing mystery that will keep readers guessing until the very end. Former attorney Andi Grey finds herself caught up in a possible murder investigation when her favorite true crime podcaster goes missing before sharing the name of a killer on his podcast. Former CID investigator Duke McAllister joins the search with Andi and end up right in the path of the killer.
This novel is a little different from her Lantern Beach and Vanishing Ranch series, where readers enjoyed the hearty dose of romance intertwined with the suspense/mystery. Duke is still searching for his missing fiancée, who disappeared two years ago, so while he and Andi may have shown a little attraction to each other, no romance developed in this novel. While the killer's identity was revealed at the end, readers will look forward to following the overall storyline arcs throughout this series. Will Duke find his missing fiancée, or will something more than friendship develop between Andi and Duke? I, for one, am invested in the storyline and cannot wait to see what happens next. The light faith content is integrated well into the novel.

Disgraced attorney Andi Slade is seeking justice for the killer who destroyed her reputation and her career. But going undercover as an ice road trucker in Alaska to find answers is just the tip of the iceberg. A brutal snowstorm, a handsome stranger, and an unsolved cold case send Andi's plans into a tailspin.
Former CID investigator Duke McAllister refuses to give up searching for his fiancée who disappeared two years ago on the Dalton Highway. When he rescues a woman on the side of the road, he knows just how much danger she’s in. Stranded together and butting heads, they discover a common interest: true crime.
When their favorite local Alaskan podcaster goes radio silent right before revealing the name of a cold case killer, they dive in to investigate only to make a terrifyingly frigid discovery. Can these strangers work together to find answers before the biting, dangerous cold claims their lives? Or even worse . . . before the killer comes looking for his own brand of justice?
