Jed Had to Die

Bald Knob, KY Police Department
Katerina: Why am I here?
Deputy Lloyd: Ur, I have no idea, ma'am, you were the one who initiated this interview.
Katerina: I'm pretty sure you know the reason, though.
Deputy Lloyd: Oh right, review purposes!
Katerina: Good boy. Even though I'd have preferred Sheriff Leo Hudson, I keep picturing him as Chris Hemsworth in Thor, is it true that the resemblance is uncanny? Because if it is I wouldn't say no to a trip to Valhalla with him-
She's a lady asshole. A lasshole.
Her and her "edgy" friend are the kind of girls that are NOT in the tribe. They are the judgy girls who cut other girls down because they are just that cool. If you need to cut another girl down to prove to yourself and others how cool you are, you aren't. You're just a mean girl and need to be hit by a bus.
I absolutely loved Jed had to Die! This story made me grin from the first page, I loved it so much! Jed Had To Die was hilarious, clever, sweet and fast paced! The mystery was perfect keeping me guessing all the time!
There is a murder, people guessing who did it, two best friends who thought they did it and a hot sheriff to make you swoon! Doesn't this make you want to read it?
I absolutely adored Payton and Leo,they were funny and sweet!The secondary characters were also as fa ...more

Well, my belly hurts from laughing so hard, and my heart feels happy from swooning so much over Mr. Hot guy, Leo.
Laughs, romance and tons of coffee, what else can we ask for????
Jed Had To Die was totally delicious, a book not to miss.

Coffee: Because crack will get you fired.
This book is one of the most entertaining and hilarious books I have EVER read. I loved it from the very first page, and I could not stop laughing.
Payton Lambert left her small town Bald Knob, Kentucky twelve years ago, determined to make a success of her life, and to get away from the nosy townspeople and their lack of good coffee. But when she gets a call saying her best friend from school is in the hospital and Payton is her emergency c...more
I love Tara Sivec’s humor! Jed Had to Die had humor, heat, and characters that truly made me smile.
I love a good suspense and something that keeps you thinking and on the edge of your seat and Jed Had to Die did just that. Whenever I am looking for something different and out of the box, I know that Tara will give it to me.
Payton is back home to take care of her best friend Emma Jo who was in the hospital. When Emma’s husband Jed mysteriously dies, the girls are freaking out wondering ...more
Not to take away from the humorous and very talented writing of Tara Sivec but this story was perfect for audio. Or, maybe it would be better to say that Jed Had to Die was perfectly performed by Amy McFadden.
Oh my lordy, I laughed...out loud...in public!!
To be honest, Jed Had to Die nearly killed me. Well sorta kinda my fault but I'll blame Tara and Amy for it too. Kind of spoilery, so proceed with caution. There I am, snuffly from a cold and a litt ...more
-I liked reading the snippets of the police interviewing the townspeople. They were bizarre and a bitttt funny sometimes
-I liked that Payton learned to love her weird small town again.

I haven't read Tara Sivec for a while but this was a good one to re-start. What can I say? I love being the crazy lady that laughs alone at the train.
This was a hilarious, sexy and emotional book about a guy that just got the girl of his nerdy teenager dreams and about a girl that found out that the place we ran away from, it's actually where we belong.
If you like Tara Sivec or if you just like hilarious romance books... you should definitely read this one.

4 "Liquid Crack is fine." Stars
Tara Sivec put a smile on my face throughout Jed Had to Die. A cross between the Dixie Chicks song "Earl Had to Die" and Kristen Ashley's Rock Chick series, Jed Had to Die hails as a laugh out loud funny, incredibly zany suspense with sweet & silly romance. With each Rom-com style book of Sivec's her charmingly witty writing constantly seduces me into the romance of her stories add a little ...more
Holy Hotness Nerd Alert! Leo, nerd turned superhero. That is the kind of hero I’m talking about. I love romances where the Hero wasn’t always the hot male that he is n ...more
Jed Had to Die was a quick and easy read. It’s told from dual points of view and had me laughing my ass off. Seriously, I could not get enough of this book. From the small town gossip to the entertaining police reports/interviews, there was not a dull moment. It was hard not to fall in l ...more
I love love LOVED this book so much! I laughed my ass off, I cried (dammit!), and I craved coffee the entire time... Haha!
A coffee addict leaves her small-town home in rural Kentucky vowing never to return, establishes a highly successful coffee chain in Chicago, but is pulled back home by her lifelong bestie ending up in the hospital after being brutally beaten by her husband Jed.

I laughed so much. In typical Tara Sivec fashion, I was belly laughing through this whole book. She has got female relationships down pat and writes banter like no ones business. The romance seemed a bit secondary to all that, but still this book was a rom-com winner.
Jed Had To Die by Tara Sivec
Standalone Romantic Comedy/ Mystery.
If you have followed Ana's Attic for any length of time, you know that Tara Sivec is one of my favorite authors, especially her romantic comedies. The Chocolate Lovers & Chocoholics Series are still my favorite all-time series, but The Holidays and now Jed Had To Die are joining the ranks. *Note: though it may seem I tell too much of the story, I don't go further than the blurb*
The thing I love about Tara's comedies is th ...more
למרות שהוא מסווג כרומן רומנטי, ובאמת יש בו אספקט רומנטי, הוא לא תופס חלק נרחב מהעלילה.
הספר עוסק בעיקר בנושאים כואבים כמו התעללות במשפחה, שתיקת השכנים והציבור והתעלמות שלהם מהמידע שיש בידם על ההתעללות (מדיניות העלמת העין ואי ההתערבות) והיכולת של הצד שהתעללו בו להשתקם.
הסיפור הוא מעיין יומן חקירת המוות של ג'ד. ג'ד היה ראש העיר של העיירה הקטנה וגופתו נמצאת בשטח ביתו. הסיפור נמסר לקורא בפרקים מתחלפים שמתארים מחד את האירועים השוטפי ...more
Jed Had to Die might just be my new favorite Tara Sivec book. It's full of love and laughter while tackling a scary subject. There is also an element of mystery which I loved. Tara kept me on my toes, I can't recommend Jed Had to Die enough.
Tara Sivec is a comedic genius; it’s just that simple. She spews one liners and laugh out loud dialogue like the rest of us make small talk. I have read every single one of her comedy books (along with most of her others as well) and I can honestly say that Jed Had To Die ranks with the best of them.
‘Everyone in Bald Knob might like Jed, but if comes anywhere near my friend, Jed is dead.’
I won’t go over the basic plot of it all because if you have read the synopsis or listened to t ...more
