To save an innocent woman, the pair scrambles to unravel three complex interlinked puzzles: the mystery of three guns, the pulled-out pant pockets of one victim, and the disappearance of a teenager whose stepfather always had the last laugh–until he died.


Yay! Another 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Book. So if you want to know why I gave the book that rating. read my review below…

The story starts showing different scenarios of different people in Broward’s Rock (Island’s Name) The Main Character is Annie Darling a Mystery Bookstore owner  and her husband Max Darling. Everything was Okay in Broward’s Rock until a lifeless body of a teenage boy was found in a Nature Preserve. Nobody thought it was Murder they just thought the boy fell and hit his head and then died. But! detail is everything. the boy’s pocket were pulled out as if something was taken from him. the question is, What was taken from him? and Why it ended up getting him killed. So in Broward’s Rock there is a Recreational Center where kids and teenagers go to play and socialize with others. they call it the Haven. The Haven had this annual talent show and everybody was invited and they had a surprise guest which was the CEO of a Multimillion dollar Enterprise. Mr. Wagner was suppose to give a speech for the program. but…A gunshot was fired and Mr. Wagner was dead on the spot. The title of the book was referring to Mr. Wagner since he laughed all the time, even before he was shot he was laughing so he literally Laughed Til’ He Died. The story continued when the authorities  accused an innocent woman for killing the millionaire, because she’s the only one that has a motive to kill him. If she is proven Guilty or Not is one of the parts you will look forward to. The best part of the book shall not be spoiled! so you better read the book.

My Favorite Character is Annie. Well she loves mystery books, and I love mystery books, but I’m not that fearless to help find who the murderer was. So she tries to help in every way she can with the murder case and she did  a big part in solving the case by the end of the book. (I WON’T SPOIL)

Okay! So the book. I like it very much. easy to read, not that fast paced cause had many conversations and stuff, The Dialogues were great, the narrations were very nice. I loved how the book only has 17 chapters. The author put different conversations in one page separating each scenarios with a straight line. like finally a book like this is what I’m trying to look in terms of how the chapters are written, but we can never tell maybe my preferences would change. Overall the book was awesome and I loved it to bits. a very very very good mystery book where you wouldn’t know who the murderer was until you read the very last page and because of that the 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 is not a waste at all.


Yeeees!!! If you are a fan of Mystery Novels Like me then Yes! Also this is the very first book I’ve read from Carolyn Hart’s work and I can’t wait to read her other books.
