Overview


 Hairstylist Azalea March is looking forward to a wild weekend in Las Vegas with her friends. Oh, sure, they’re supposed to be there on business, attending the biggest hair show on the west coast, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a little fun.

But fun quickly turns to drama. On the first morning of the show, Dhane, the biggest celeb of the hair-styling world, is found dead. As it turns out Azalea’s friend Vivian not only knew Dhane, but the tale she weaves of how they met is faker than a showgirl’s uh…assets. When Vivian confesses to the murder and is arrested, Azalea knows there’s no way she could have done it and suspects Vivian may be trying to protect someone. But who?

Azalea now has to convince Alex, the sexy detective from her past, to help her prove Vivian’s innocence and comb through clues more twisted than a spiral perm. But the truth is stranger than anything found on the Las Vegas Strip, and proving Vivian’s innocence turns out to be more difficult than transforming a brunette into a blonde.

    I'm a huge Beth Yarnall fan. Her books are consistently good, witty, and the absurdity is downright hysterical. Dyed and Gone was
    another delight. I can't praise it enough. But I'll try.

    Azalea March is an interesting character; flawed and endearing, with a personality that wins over and frustrates those around her.
    Lucky for us, she's a girl who can't leave well enough alone.

    There's charm, mystery, laughs, romance, and of course, death and dying here. Oh boy. This is one story you're going to want to get
    your hands on as soon as you can.

    A hilarious if not over the top read.

    Reviewed by Kim
    for Read Your Writes Book Reviews

    Dyed and Gone by Beth Yarnall is a hilarious read. Told in first person, it chronicles a Vegas weekend of hairstylist Azalea March and her two best friends, Vivian and Juan Carlos. What was supposed to be a weekend of fun, networking, and attending a hair conference turns into a weekend of investigating the murder of one of the biggest names in hair care, when Vivian is accused of the crime.

    Yarnall writes a story that the reader is actually able to visualize. Her descriptions are over the top, but I can actually see them happening; such as people dressed up as anime characters and models dressed up as trees with sky high hair.

    I enjoyed reading the book but I felt that the character development of Azalea wasn’t really complete. She’s a little quirky and has her hang-ups, but I wasn’t really sure why. Also her relationship with Alex wasn’t really what I thought it was. I was surprised that they didn’t really know anything about each other although they had went out in the past.

    I had a hard time getting into the book in the beginning. In a timeframe when some people would have given up, I kept reading because of curiosity and the fact that Juan Carlos is the King of one liners. It was worth it. The book became entertaining and a real page turner, with me trying to figure out what was going on, whodunit, and why.

    Azalea has a heart of gold and her desire to investigate comes from a good place. Unfortunately, she asks too many questions and becomes a target for the police and the murderer. I’m looking forward to seeing what Yarnall has planned next for Azalea and her "ragtag band of hairstylists turned detectives".

    Holy drama Batman!!! I love books with a bit of a mystery to them. This was like an intense version of Clue or a Murder Mystery Dinner!!! I literally had no idea who was the bad guy until the bitter end and that almost NEVER happens. So for that alone, I have to commend Beth because, girl, you had me fooled!!
    So here is what I loved about this book, besides the obvious mystery element.
    I liked Azalea. She was a total hothead but a fierce friend and she was totally kick ass. She just kind of did whatever she wanted, didn't really listen to reason and did everything she could to solve the mystery and avenge the people who had been done wrong by these unfortunate events. I really liked that about her. There were two men constantly telling her to keep her nose of out of things and she was just like- no.
    I LOVED the gay besties. You know I always do. But they were hilarious and totally over the top and ridiculous and I loved everything about them.

    I also really loved the little details. Beth was obviously either a hairdresser in a former life or spend some serious time researching hairshows because she knew a lot about how they worked and I thought that was a great touch.

    The book did have some issues for me but they weren't things that would make me say I didn't like the book. My major issues was that there might have been too much going on. There were times where I thought the plot was almost too complicated and started to get overwhelmed by the characters. But, I did end up totally getting what was going on and enjoying it so it might not be as confusing for others. I also was sometimes confused about her relationship with Alex. I wish we had gotten a bit more of their back story because their present day relationship seemed a little out of nowhere for how fast it moved. I also worried that the police detective working the case was going to be a love interest so I spent a lot of time being really nervous about that. But there is no cheating and he turns out to be just a really overly concerned but sort of a jerk detective.

    Overall, I liked this book a lot. If you like mysteries, I would definitely check this one out. It's a good one and it will keep you guessing until the very end!!
