Bestselling author J.A. Jance is the special guest at the Renton and Kent-Covington Soroptimist clubs’ spring brunch Sunday, April 23 at Meridian Valley Country Club, 24830 136th Ave. SE, Kent.

Festivities begin at 11:30 a.m.

Fans can savor “insider” tales of Jane’s popular book series, spotlighting Seattle homicide detective J.P. Beaumont – Beau to his friends – who became suddenly rich in a wicked plot twist and now looks over the waterfront from a penthouse High in Belltown Terrace. And Cochise County Sheriff Joanna Brady, who lives on High Lonesome Ranch near Bisbee, Ariz. Duty calls Brady from the desert to the Chiricahua Mountains.

Jance is on tour to promote “Man Overboard”, the latest book in her Ali Reynolds series. Reynolds, a former Los Angeles news anchor, turned to solving mysteries in this suspense series. Jance, who grew up in Bisbee, lives with her husband in Seattle and Tucson, Ariz.

Proceeds from the event support Live Your Dream Awards and other programs to improve the lives of women and girls – locally and around the globe. Two women will be presented with the 2017 Live Your Dream education and training award.

Books will be sold and signed, and a jewelry sale will be available. A brunch of steak, eggs, fruit and muffins will be served. Cost is $35. The event is open to all ages.

For tickets, call 206-295-9831 or email joladdclark@comcast.net.
