Abandoned in Death Teasers

I apologize for the delayed teasers this go round. Life has been spinning fast for me since December 1, culminating in hip surgery 5 days ago. To make it up to you, I offer a bunch of teasers in one shot.

As always, these are little Easter eggs (to borrow a film term) you’ll find in the book, not spoilers or major plot points.

I re-read Abandoned this week to create my list and it’s a fun, fast read. I think you’ll enjoy it.

So here we go:

  • The memo has gone out: Don’t mess with Bella’s territory.
  • Eve and Peabody are diametrically opposed on body art.
  • Summer internships are interesting and flexible.
  • Eve may have an unsettling definition of Good Mom.
  • It’s been nearly 3 years????
  • Always choose a meditation mantra that fits.
  • Could the perfect lip color get the bad guy?
  • Eve finally expresses an interest in real estate her reasons fascinate Roarke.
  • Life is a balance: you’re too young for some things/too old for others.
  • We learn Peabody has laid conversational traps for her partner.

If your copy of Abandoned in Death already arrived, please do not discuss the book in the comments here. I will open the discussion thread early Tuesday morning.

  1. I’m not sure I’d have been doing this much 5 days after hip surgery, Laura! Congrats & behave yourself! You’ll feel so much better now that the surgery is out of the way!

      1. Nah, having the hip not hurting every time I moved, including turning over in bed, offset even those darned bills!


  3. Got the best early Valentines Day gift. My son won an arc of Abandoned for me! Stayed up till 3am finishing it. Great read as always. At least 3 of your teasers were on my list of memorable moments.
    Was very happy to hear your surgery went well. Hope your recovery is even better!

  4. Thank you, Laura! It’s always fun to find those Easter eggs when I’m reading the book. Layers of enjoyment. 😃

    Please take it easy on yourself and look after your healing body.

  5. Can’t wait, these easter eggs will be fun to find. Laura, you take care and let your body heal. PT will be fun too.

  6. Thank you for this Laura, it was so nice of you to do when you are on the mend. I’m glad that your surgery went well and I’m sending best wishes and prayers for a speedy recovery. Take care of yourself!

  7. Thanks for doing this Laura, I hope you’re feeling as well as it sounds like you are. I can’t wait to find out which partner of Peabody’s you’re talking about in the last teaser. I’m going to assume Eve since Ian seldom lacks for conversational abilities. 🙂

  8. Love to get to the “Teasers” point! Means we are close soooooo close! Thank you Laura, may you progress to leaping and twirling very soon ❤️👍

  9. Thank you for the teasers. I feel like a small child waiting for Christmas. My hip was replaced a few years ago and I can tell you to listen to the Physical Therapist. Be well.

  10. Laura, be a rock star at PT. It will be your salvation. Been there done the hip thing and many other orthopedic surgeries. Keep moving! One doctor told me if he had his way all beds would’ve removed from the Ortho unit!

    1. Look forward to the Teasers and I was so glad you were able to post them.
      Happy your surgery was successful and hope you have a swift recovery. Take good care of yourself.

  11. I’m counting the days until it magically appears on my Kindle (preordered long ago).

  12. Apologies not necessary. You are sweet but nuts for going back to work so early. Taking care of yourself should be your main priority.

  13. I’m imagining all kinds of scenarios!! That’s a fun list. Thanks, Laura. Hope you’re healing fast.

  14. Looking so forward to “egg hunting” and enjoying another trip to E&R land. Had my second after surgery visit (7+ weeks) and my surgeon showed me the new x-ray! O-M-G! I’m really a cyborg now. It’s wild. Stick with your PT, lovely lady. Your muscles will thank you. But.don’t stint on resting. Bone heals slowly they keep telling me. Congrats 🎉 and thanks for all you do.

  15. Hummmm. Could the perfect lip color get the bad guy? So looking forward to the book. I hope your post-hip replacement PT is going well.

  16. Hi Laura,
    Good to hear from you again. Hope you’re taking it easy post surgery! I can’t wait to get started. When does the book come out? I have it on hold at several libraries.

  17. Take care of yourself, Laura, surgery is no joke! Be sure to follow doctor and PT instructions so you can recover fully and not experience any residual pain.

  18. I’ve been wanting Eve to shock Roarke with a real estate or business idea and make him another billion or two. Which he promptly puts in her name. Lol! Can’t wait to start reading and hope my Nook copy downloads at 12:00:01 am. 😁🤣❤️

  19. Best wishes for a quick, easy recovery (and then you can kick some butt in those “games” Nora makes you play)

    Woke up at 3 AM, as usual in my sleep cycle, but couldn’t go back to sleep because I knew what was waiting for me on my kindle! Too bad I have to go to work today, sigh.
