Recommends it for: Comedy and Mystery readers
In the vein of the funniest writers available, Kat Jorgensen has presented us with a witty, delightful read, and a combination of zany characters. Becca's granddad is memorable and his antics had me laughing from the moment he hit the pages! I tried, but couldn't guess the villain, and was pleasantly surprised at the ending. If you love a great mystery, Your Eight O'Clock is Dead, will entertain for hours. I can't wait for book two to hit the shelves. Kudos to Ms Jorgensen on her first book in t ...more

Becca Reynolds is a hapless 20-something, divorced and living with her irascible grandfather and his cranky cat, who takes an instant dislike to Becca. She’s the “office manager” (or so she tells everyone; in reality, she’s a receptionist who may not make it past her probationary period) for two psychologists with a fledgling business. She arrives to work one day, late as usual and finds the firm’s eight o’clock appointment dead in a wing chair in the reception area, with her boss’s letter opene ...more

A cast of characters to die for, a plot with twists and turns, humor that will have you chuckling out loud - I loved Your eight o'clock is dead. There definitely was no better way for me to spend a Sunday afternoon, than to chomp my way through this delightful mystery.
Kat Jorgensen has the ability to take a ditsy receptionist and turn her into an ace detective while still making her investigation attempts farcical. Every character played their role superbly to make this book a great read!

This was a fun read. The writing was humorus, but not silly. The plot had twists and turns and kept me guessing. Looking forward to this authors 2nd book.

Couldn't finish. I don't like the main character enough to care.

Shelves: crime, funny
This is a very funny book.

It’s pretty much a cosy mystery, although Becca Reynolds is no Miss Marple. She a ditzy air-head with a great imagination, and true Southern style, and I found her irritating, likeable, and funny in equal measures. Likeable and funny win, hands down. Exactly why she takes it on herself to investigate the reason why one of her boss’s clients is sitting in Reception, dead by person or persons unknown, rather than leaving it to the police, is hard to fathom. Natural rage

Kat Jorgensen is on tour with Your Eight O’Clock is Dead at CLP Blog Tours. Becca Reynolds doesn’t have a good start to her morning when she is late for work, ruins patient files with the oil from biscuit breakfast, and oh yes – finds a dead client in the waiting room. Becca works as an office manager (not really, but she think it sounds better than “gopher” or “door mat,” at a struggling psychiatrists office, and the murder only makes things worse for business. Becca, in danger of losing her on ...more

I cannot begin to express how much joy YOUR EIGHT O'CLOCK IS DEAD has brought me. I absolutely loved this book from cover to cover. Becca, the main character, is somebody that I would love to have as a friend. I can only imagine all of shenanigans she and I could get into together. Becca is witty, loveable and idealistic. The minute I finished reading this book I immediately looked to see when book two is due out (Jorgensen is busy working on it now!) Jorgensen has created a story with a main ch
Feb 12, 2012 Angela rated it liked it
This book was written by a friend of mine and it's my normal genre. I would call it a light hearted murder mystery with a funny, bumbling lead character. The things I didn't like about it were all related to the genre so I'll stick to the things I did like. The characters were a bit comical (in a good way) and I did find myself laughing out loud a few times. The "stick your foot in your mouth" moments were awkward and fun at the same time. With it being the first book in a series I think Kat has ...more

Fun Book. Actually had me laugh out loud, which is something I find rare. Did get slow at some parts - but really hope there's a sequel because the characters are so well developed that I want to see them again.
I picked this up through Smashwords so when I say that this is 'loanable' that is only for the Amazon version.

I just could not stay with this one. Sad. I was hoping for some Richmond flavor.
