Gabe and Josh’s romantic dinner date to celebrate love and life takes a shocking twist when a man who’s presumed dead enters the restaurant. What Gabe learns that night and the days that follow sends the homicide investigation down a road full of sharp twists and dangerous turns.
Josh is finally living the life he’s always wanted. He has a man who loves him just the way he is and an exciting new career opportunity. All of that feels threatened when a mysterious neighbor moves into the neighborhood. Josh is convinced his presence is more than a coincidence and questions what fate has in store for the happy couple.
Can Gabe find the balance between work and love or will his focus on justice put their harmony in jeopardy? Can Josh continue to overcome his insecurities or will they overshadow the beautiful life he’s building with the man he loves?
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.
Book three in the Curl Up and Dye series. Another good book!
The mysteries continue in Blissville and Gabe and Josh’s relationship continues to develop. Quite a few loose ends were rounded off in this book but a few unanswered questions remain. My number one unanswered question being ‘who on earth broke in to Georgia Beaumont’s house?!!!’ (From book one).
Secondary characters are again brilliant in this book and we get to meet some new faces. I sincerely hope there will be some spin off books about some of the other characters!
‘People can tout Disney’s theme parks as the happiest places all they wanted, but Gabe’s arms were my happy place. They can have the mouse; I had the man.’
Josh and Gabe continue to be oh so sweet and are becoming more secure in their feelings for each other. Josh’s snark appears to be rubbing (ahem) off on Gabe but he still refuses to cave in to wearing skinny jeans.
“You look constipated,” he managed to wheeze out in between peals of laughter. “I love you so damn much, Gabe. Never change.” I was so glad I could entertain him, but damn my ego took a dive when Josh couldn’t tell my constipated face from my sexy face. His next words soothed my wounded pride. “You don’t need a sexy face for me to want to throw myself in your arms, Gabe. You just need to keep breathing.”
The humour remains in this book and I love that I’m trying to work out who the murderer is one minute then laughing out loud at that damn bird and his ever increasing rude vocabulary!
I rated this book as 4 stars (lower than last 2) as I must admit this one lost me for a bit in the middle. There were a couple of elements that I had to really struggle through. HOWEVER so glad I persevered as I love these two and all their friends and families and it turned out to be a very good read. Looking forward to the next one!
“Yes, baby, my oven will never know any other loaf but yours.”
