Dyed and Gone to Heaven is the third book in the Curl Up and Dye Mysteries series. These books were written to be read in order. They contain sexually explicit material and are intended for adults 18 and older.
Cute, cute, cayoot. Gabe and Josh are disgustingly cute. Not that that is a bad thing. But maybe a little *too* cute for me. But still…
You MUST read the previous books in this series and it wouldn’t hurt to read the prequel short on her website. Otherwise you will be lost. Besides all of the recurring characters, there is a mystery story line that continues through them all.
Josh and Gabe are now happily co-habitating. SO happily. And while they are in their honeymoon period, people are still getting murdered. But by whom? And why? You’ll find out. I promise. No spoilers from me though!
So while the mystery element is twisty and turny, we see more about the secondary characters. Namely Dr Dimples and Chaz. I really want them to end up together. There is one scene that will make you wince, but also think “yep, been there”.
Josh and Gabe also get a new neighbor. Very mysterious, naturally. He has a backstory that could be super angsty. I hope we get that story. He needs it. WE need it. Ok, I need it. Because I have a love of angst.
So I did enjoy the book, even though it was quite fluffy. And did I mention cute? There was a lot of Gabe and Josh telling each other over and over how much they loved each other and how they were good men. Not the kind of pillow talk I like, but it was ok.
Savage the parrot is absolutely hilarious. I cannot wait to hear what he says! And I love that the patrons at the salon have no problem with the Dirty Bird.
Some good points- I really enjoy that these characters go to work every day. Seems silly I know, but oftentimes I feel like characters in new relationships take off of work all of the time to be together. That just isn’t realistic. But no. They go to bed early, get up early, sometimes work different hours, etc. It’s refreshing.
Ms Walker also did a good job of wrapping up the murder mystery- but there are still questions that need to be answered. Which leaves it wide open for book 4.
