    Must Read!

    I really didn’t know what to expect when going into this book. Tara Sivec blew my mind with this one. It had just the right dose of humor, romance and mystery to make a great read. The serious message she tried to convey came through perfectly and wasn’t lost in the humor. I have to say this book tops my favorite list of hers now. 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 now. It shows growth and it’s real. Not all of us make it through puberty unscathed. Leo grew into his skin and watch out ladies, he is going to top the book boyfriend lists. I loved where this book started and how it progressed. Not knowing which direction the author was going in, I liked where the plot went and the storyline. There are lots of laugh out loud moments. Plenty of swoonworthy parts and an ending that will make your heart melt. Definitely a must read!

    Review: Jed Had to Die, by Tara Sivec

    Tara Sivec is one of my favorite authors that I discover in the last few years. And it seems that with each book she writes, she keeps herself near the top of that list. Jed Had to Die is no exception. I already consider Sivec to be a master of her own brand of comedy. What she is also good at is throwing light mystery in the mix. She did it in her Fool Me Once series, and does it again in this book. But I think I may have enjoyed this one even more. I loved the gossipy small town setting of Bald Knob, the characters who couldn’t stop making me laugh if they wanted to, and I couldn’t resist the strong presence of coffee throughout. On top of all this is the mystery of who killed Jed. While the focus may switch between this and the romance, there’s just the right amount of suspense until the reader sees the case to the end. There’s a great mix of genres in this story and I couldn’t get enough. I hope Sivec continues to write in this genre, because I’ll be jumping at the chance to read everything she writes in it in the future.

    A fun read

    I always enjoy Tara Sivec's books. Jed Had to Die was a fun, funny story with really engaging characters. Coming from a small town I could relate that push pull of having everyone in your business but also the love and support that you receive. I would recommend this as a great beach, holiday read or for someone who really needs to escape to a crazy and lovely world for a few hours.

    another tara sivec must read!

    3.5 STARS! 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 who did it. Payton hasn't been back to her hometown in a while so when she runs into hot sheriff Leo Hudson, she doesn't recognize him as the school nerd who was in her class growing up. And boy do sparks fly!!! I completely loved these characters including the secondary characters who cracked me up throughout the book in their interviews. This book is funny and entertaining and for a while there, I was trying to solve the mystery and for me, EVERYONE was a suspect. I felt like everyone was guilty and I love second guessing myself in a book! Tara Sivec has the ability to surprise me with each book she releases and the suspense combined with the humor and romance in this book makes Jed Had to Die another must read by an author who is on my always read list!

    Whodunit? You'll enjoy trying to figure it out!

    Jed Had to Die is a hilarious book! Payton left Kentucky and never looked back. But a call from her best friend Emma Jo has her racing back to the small town she left behind. When Emma Jo's husband, the mayor turns up dead, the town's sheriff Leo Hudson is tasked with finding his killer. But how do you find a killer when everybody in town becomes a suspect?
