    1. 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 wa [...]


    2. (Original post at Doing Some Reading)This was my first reading of any of Beth's book and I got to say it's dang hilarious and awesome! Can I just say don't judge a book by it's cover? I know I did but not in a bad kind of way. It was more of in a hilarious way. Which it really was because look at it! It has a hiar dryer on the cover!! Wow this really had many great laughs out of me. But I did help with the cover reveal way back when so forget that.But as you can see from the blues here we have A [...]

    4. **I read this book in advance, since Beth is a personal friend**. This book is wildly entertaining and incredibly funny. If you like a heaping side of laughs to go with your mystery, then Yarnall is an author you need to pick up and add to your library. This book features one of my favorite supporting characters I've ever had the pleasure of reading: JUAN CARLOS!!! He's so freaking funny! :) Azalea is also very witty and the world Yarnall creates is vivid and easy to picture. Buy it, laugh, and [...]


    5. MICHELLE'S REVIEWHoly 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 ju [...]


    6. A fun, suspense-filled tale that is sure to delight cozy mystery lovers! Taken from my review at RomanceJunkies:Hairstylist Azalea March is recovering from her latest relationship with police detective Alex. After their last date, he had promised to call, but never followed through. She had fallen for the handsome police officer and had high hopes for them as a couple. But he had proven as fickle as the other men she had dated. To help keep her mind off Alex and to get her off the web, where she [...]


    7. Reviewed on theblog! What makes a good mystery? In my opinion, it’s when you can’t stop thinking about the storyline you’re caught up in and you lose sleep because you just can’t put the book down. Luckily, this book does exactly that.The story looks at some friends heading for a weekend in Vegas, so immediately you make some assumptions-everything will get out of hand and it’ll be life changing for all of them. While this is true to the story, it’s not in the way you’d think. This [...]


    8. I got a copy of this book from Entangled Publishing LLC in exchange of an honest reviewDyed and Gone is my first Beth Yarnall book and I'm glad to say I wasn't disappointed.

Even though it's busin [...]

    10. Reviewed by Kimfor Read Your Writes Book ReviewsDyed 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.

    12. Dyed and Gone was everything it promised me. It was funny, romantic, and touching with just a dash of suspense mixed in with the mystery. Azalea March has some memorable friends with her when she goes to Vegas to a hair styling convention. The most memorable was Juan Carlos - I had to stop writing quotes of his down when I realized I was pulling one from every scene he was in - it was priceless. There were times he almost stole the show from Azalea. Now Azalea was written in the most perfect way [...]


    13. What a refreshing read! A zany new character with a touch of sass and a penchant for getting herself into trouble, Azalea does just that when she hits Vegas for a hair convention. What happens in Vegas unfortunately may just get a good friend into trouble if Azalea can't prove she isn't a killer. A fun romp with more twists than a corkscrew curl, this read is one that will bring you many hours of enjoyment and I for one have found a new author for my must read shelf. Beth Yarnall is a storytelle [...]


    14. really enjoyed this first book of what I hope will be a series! I've read all sorts of cozies but none where the amateur sleuth was a hair stylist. I loved reading the foray into the world of hair styling and technique. The characters are developed quite well and I found the romance between Azalea and Alex quite nice.d of course there is Kennedy and does he like Azalea too? And this is yet another book where I didn't guess the killere killer was quite hidden and you don't really figure it out un [...]


    15. Out today!!! And $0.99 for a limited time, so grab now!!! This book. OMG this book. It's the BEST. Hairdresser turned sleuth at a conference in Vegas. Hot nerdy cop, fabulous best friend with a pension for the greatest one liners, and severed heads. IT'S AMAZING. Just add it and thank me later. I promise you will love it.




    16. Dyed and Gone by Beth Yarnell is a 2014 Entangled Select publication.

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.

    17. I received a review copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.A hairstylist turned 'detective' in order to help to prove her friend's innocence despite her friend's confession to crime. The book summary promises a good story, and Dyed and Gone does not disappoint me with its characters and plots. I was kept busy throughout the entire journey with Azalea, trying to put bits and pieces alongside her. There was just so much discoveries and suspects to play with that I can't help but [...]


    18. *Possible minor spoilers ahead :)*I knew this book was going to be about hairstyling. And I thought that was going to be a bad thing But, as soon as I started getting into the story, the characters, and the murder case, yes there's a murder case!! I didn't mind it so much. Yes, I'll admit, I didn't really get a lot of the hairstyling terms the characters used in this story, but the characters' roles, really scratched that off. And as for the romance? There was both M/M and NA :) And I just enjoy [...]


    19. 4 STARS Azalea and friends make for a fun cast of characters. Even the suspects are a range of characters that keep you guessing about who might be guilty or not. Lots of drama, action and romance among the hairstylist convention in Las Vegas. It is also a clean cozy mystery. Azalea March is a salon owner that is depressed over romance that is over before it really started. Her two friends get her to go with them to the convention. Azalea is a very curious person. She gets a invitation and room [...]


    20. Full review up on the blog:gloriousbooks/2Dyed and Gone follows Azalea March as she tries her best to solve the murder of well known celebrity, Dhane - well known in the hairdressing world at least. Azalea soon finds herself turning into trouble at every corner so enlists the help of Alex, the hunky detective that she just happens to be having a little bit of a spat with. I have to admit straight off, I didn't like this book. It was one that I didn't connect to at all - I couldn't relate to most [...]


    21. Dyed and Gone is such a fabulously witty and fun read. Set in the crazy world of Las Vegas at the hair-styling equivalent of the Oscars, our protagonists, Azalea March, her Hair Salon business partner and best friend, Vivian, together with their stylist Juan Carlos are just there to have a good time.but in cozy mystery land, of course, things never turn out as planned!The basic premise is that Vivian confesses to killing her friend Dhane, Azalea know she's innocent and determines to prove otherw [...]


    22. I give this book 4 stars. It started off a little slow, and I was originally a little lost in the hairstylist lingo, but I’m glad I hung in there, because it was a cute book. Azalea runs around sticking her nose in where it doesn’t belong, trying to find out who murdered the infamous Dhane. Though she’s trying hard to forget about Alex, his charms and mere presence make that difficult to do. Juan Carlos was hilarious and was absolutely my favorite character in the book. I would love to hav [...]


    23. This book follows Azalea March as she is having a wild weekend with her friends in Vegas when death pops it's ugly head. When Dhane a big celebrity winds up beheaded and Azalea's friend Viv confesses to committing the murder but Azalea knows her friend didn't commit the crime and now it's up to Azalea and Juan Carlos to find out who killed Juan Carlos and why her friend Viv is sitting in jail. Azalea meets some interesting characters connected to Dhane like his sister Trinity who's got a few scr [...]


    24. Initially it took a while to really like this book as it was very slow to start but once the story picked up it gained momentum with the witty, laughable character dialogue that was definitely memorable points throughout the book. Suspense, mystery, intrigue and a bit of romance all thrown in, Dyed And Gone was not an altogether bad read.3.5 Stars*ARC Received from the Publisher for an hones review.


    25. I loved this book! Any book that makes me laugh out loud with a fun ensemble of characters is a keeper on my shelf. A great mystery, hilarious characters and Alex the copm! Can't wait to read more of zany Azalea's and Juan Carlos' hijinks and mysteriesd yeah, more taking it to the next level with Alex!Well-written, laugh-out loud funny, with a superbly drawn cast of characters made this cozy mystery one of my favorite reads of the year!


    26. This is a great book. It's the first I've read by author Beth Yarnall, but she's just made it to my "authors to watch for" list.The plot is fast paced, snappy dialogue, truly colorful characters and extremely funny moments/situations. Azalea is a hairdresser/amateur sleuth. Can't keep her nose out of the investigation and trouble finds her regardless of what she does.This is one of my new favorites.


    27. Move over Stephanie Plum, Azalea March is here. The fun that has gone missing for me in the Plum series has landed here. And FUN is the best description for this book. It is a cozy mystery with a feisty heroine with the romance served on the side [perfect for dipping into for a bit of spice]. While the mystery itself has twists and turns, it stays on track. It was pretty much what I was expecting but it delivered the story well.I received a free copy via GoodReads.


    28. I was looking for a new mystery series with a female (not detective) to be the heroine, but this is not it. I finished the book and felt cheated. The characters were just too over-the-top stereotypical (and I found that demeaning to them). It felt like the author was trying too hard to be witty and instead just came off as patronizing.I won't be picking up book 2.
