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.

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????

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...more
I am not sure what is going on with this book. Someone dies then there is a sexy hero sheriff and a very damsel in distress. The story is about romance mix with murder mystery. The conversations between characters (main and secondary characters) are very confusing and immature. I think I lost it somewhere with all of these stupid immature police interrogation.
The whole village/ town is just immature and stupid. Even the comedy can not save this book.
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

Genre: Romantic Comedy + Mystery
:: 5 Pretty Little Stars ::
This book. OMG it’s hilarious, mysterious, fun, and totally wacky! I loved every single minute of it. Tara Sivec has a flair for writing romantic comedies, but in this one, the way she adds mystery to the story makes it surpass all her other novels (although yes, I loved those ones too). Gah, I can’t even express my excitement for this book! It’s just really good and you have to read it for yourself! T ...more

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 mys ...more
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.

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.
I think Tara Sivec has bumped her way up to my favourite romance authors. This was hilarious and so much fun. It was exactly what I needed. I was hooked from the first paragraph. I HIGHLY suggest listening to the audiobook which is what I did. It made the entire experience so much better. The narrator was fabulous and truly made brought all the characters to life.
I’m not surprised at the ending and I’m guessed the murderer from the start so there wasn’t a huge twist or anythi ...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
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 ...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.
After working in the brokerage business for fourteen years, Tara decided to pick up a pen and write instead of shoving it in her eye out of ...more
