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.

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.
