Browseabout Books will host a meet-and-greet luncheon with bestselling author Sandra Brown from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 25, at the Rehoboth Beach Country Club.
Tickets are $60 and include an autographed copy of “Overkill,” a delicious buffet lunch, a nonalcoholic beverage and gratuity.
As she mingles with attendees, Brown will speak about her new novel, answer questions from the audience, personalize books and take photographs with attendees. Copies of “Overkill” and many of Brown’s other books will be available for purchase before and after the luncheon.
In “Overkill,” former Super Bowl MVP quarterback Zach Bridger hasn’t seen his ex-wife Rebecca Pratt for years, not since their volatile marriage imploded. He is shocked to receive a life-altering call that Rebecca has been placed on life support after a violent assault. And despite their divorce, Zach has medical power of attorney and is asked to make an impossible choice: keep her on life support or take her off it. Buckling under the weight of the responsibility and the glare of public scrutiny, Zach ultimately walks away, letting Rebecca’s parents have the final say.
Four years later, Rebecca’s attacker Eban, the scion of a wealthy North Carolina family, gets an early release from prison. The ludicrous miscarriage of justice reeks of favoritism, and Kate Lennon, a brilliant state prosecutor, is determined to bring him to justice. Rebecca’s parents have kept her alive all these years, but if her condition were to change, if she were to die, Eban could be retried on a new charge of murder.
Kate’s mission to send Eban back to prison for good depends on Zach. It isn’t lost on him that in order for Eban to be charged with Rebecca’s murder, Zach must actually be the one to kill her. He rejects Kate’s legal standpoint, but can’t resist their ill-timed attraction to each other. Eban, having realized the jeopardy he’s in, plots to make certain that neither Zach nor Kate lives to see the death of Rebecca and the end of his freedom.
Currently, there are no indoor mask mandates in place; registered guests will be notified if that changes. Rehoboth Beach Country Club asks that guests not wear jeans.
