Publisher's Summary

The happiest day of Payton Lambert's life was the day she graduated high school and watched Bald Knob, Kentucky, get smaller and smaller in her rearview mirror. She wanted more for her life than a tiny town where everyone knows your business and you can't find a decent cup of coffee for at least 40 miles. Twelve years later an unexpected phone call in the middle of the night has her packing up her life in Chicago and racing back home to the one person she ever regretted leaving behind.

Upon her return she sees that Leo Hudson, the scrawny boy who had followed Payton around like a puppy and could recite cow insemination facts in his sleep, is long gone. Leo is still hot on her heels, but now he's wearing a sheriff badge and dead set on solving a murder that may or may not involve Payton, along with half the town. In a town where the biggest crime happened the day someone kicked a few of his cows, people are pointing fingers, rumors are spreading like wildfire, and Payton swears she's only making out with the sweet-talking, studly sheriff to distract him from the secrets she's keeping.

When you've been tased, peed on by a yippy dog named Bo Jangles, and can't stop picturing what Sheriff Hudson looks like naked, it will be a tough job making everyone agree that Jed had to die.

    "!!! LIQUID CRACK !!!"

    Coffee Mug: A good friend knows how you take your coffee...A great friend adds booze!

    The publisher's summary is spot on with plenty of detail which drew me to this book and reviews telling how hilarious it is.

    If you haven't experienced small town living think of something like 'The Andy Griffith Show...Mayberry RFD.' Everyone knows everyone and they're all over each others business. This is why Payton left Bald Knob, Kentucky and moved to Chicago where she opens a coffee shop named Liquid Crack.

    Payton receives an emergency phone call and returns to Bald Knob to help a friend. A few days later her friends husband 'Jed' is found dead. The hilarious investigation and antics of Payton and girl friends begin....

    As I said this book is hilarious, there's also a hot sexy relationship with the sheriff (all I'm saying about that, you have to listen :), fun, mystery and girlfriends bonding and supporting each other.

    Tara Sivec has a great sense of humor, fun, and laughter in her writing.

    Amy McFadden gives a very funny, comical, hilarious performance.

    Worth a credit/$$ Absolutely. I'll listen to this book over and over.

    "Loved!!!"

    I'm a big fan of Tara Sivec. I love how she can write in so many different styles and still capture you in her stories. Jed Had to Die tackles a serious subject, that hit close to home for me. The sarcasm and quirkiness of the characters makes the story believable and hilarious. Though it was a little fast past at times the story was very enjoyable.

    Also, don't listen at work unless you are prepared to explain sudden outburst of laughter!!!

    "Laugh out loud funny!"
    What did you love best about Jed Had to Die?

    Interesting storyline. It had me laughing from start to finish!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Payton. She was quirky and funny.


    Have you listened to any of Amy McFadden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to her before, but I definitely would again! Great narration!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved the friendship between Emma Jo and Payton. Even though they had been apart for 12 years, they picked right up where they left off. True friendships never die!

    Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.

    A comedic take on a "who dunnit". These 2 best friends are hilarious in their own separate ways and I laughed and giggled the whole book. With all of the twists and turns and admissions and denials, I seriously had no idea how Jed died until the very end. This book will keep you entertained and unable to press pause.

    Amy McFadden is one of my favorites and she is absolutely perfect for this book. Her timber and tone brought each and every character to life.

    I voluntarily was given this audiobook by the author, publisher or narrator via Audiobook Boom

    "5 Jed had to Die Stars"


    Tara Sivec books are a no brainer seriously you know when you pick on up your going to fall in love and laugh your booty off.

    Jed had to Die is totally funny with serious content. We have a mystery, a love story, a friendship, humor and COFFEE!!!
    Can I have a cup of Payton’s coffee please!!! Whatever she does to one I need one!

    Payton is from a small town but choose to spread her wings in Chicago, where she opens up a coffee shop call Liquid Crack.. (BEST Shop Name EVER)
    She gets a call that an old friend is in the hospital, she wastes no time getting back to her hometown to take care of her.

    The Sheriff of her home town is a hottie mick-toddy. And this does not go a miss with Payton. Only she doesn't realize she knows say Sheriff.

    Leo or the Sheriff was the nerd who was a few years older than Payton and used to be her tutor. He is so swoon worthy and fun. His smirk.. I swear!!
    He was so taken with Payton then and now it’s adorable and sexy and sooo freaking HOT. Who doesn't like a man in uniform who is a secret nerd?

    This whole book I was laughing or smiling or giggling like a school girl, the town and its people. Payton and her antics, her friends then and now. It’s fanfreakintastic this book really got me out of a book funk.

    The narration….OH MY GOD….FABULOUS!
    I loved it Amy McFadden does such a good job, I am a huge fan! I can’t even tell you how much I love her work.
