Irwin Abernathy, Harper Crane
Unlikely Friends was supposed to be a one-off. A single book. A 'one and done' ... However, sometimes, the characters in our stories have more to say. In this case, a lot more to say. More adventures to go on, things to do, people to rescue, hearts to mend, and businesses to break into... Oops, did I say that? Moving on...
Devoted Friends, Book #2, in the Abernathy & Crane Book Series is headed for publication! That's right! The next adventure begins on:
August 12, 2020!
Why August 12th?
Because it's a super cool day.
I know, because I've done it now 58 times, but who's counting?

Devoted Friends (The Abernathy & Crane Series Book 2)
Now here's a quick peek to see
getting yourself into...
Grouchy former librarian Irwin Abernathy, presently the co-owner of Abernathy & Crane, is busy preparing the bookshop for the holidays. Meanwhile, his neighbor and nemesis, Alastair Brooke, lays dying next door. It’s no secret that Irwin and most of the town dislike the irritating antique dealer, but Irwin can’t imagine what nasty deed the vile little man did to deserve being murdered!
Within moments of their arrival, the police suspect Irwin’s friend, ex-convict Darren Crane. His arrest launches everyone and everything at Abernathy & Crane into utter chaos. While poor, innocent Darren wallows away inside a jail cell, Irwin and his incorrigible friends are busy doing whatever it takes to prove his innocence––which frankly terrifies Darren almost as much as being hauled back to prison!
Devoted Friends is a heartwarming story about the compassion and humor required when one is confronted by life’s many unpredictable obstacles. It is also about friendships driven by courage, dignity, and the unrelenting fortitude necessary when facing grief and heartbreak in a sometimes unfair, perfectly, imperfect world.
How about this cover!

Irwin is not only the local Librarian; he’s also a book snob and an all-around grouch. There’s nothing he values more than his privacy. As a loner, he’s happy to be surrounded by books instead of subjected to the incessant blathering of dysfunctional people.
The one thing Irwin despises more than people is change. He’s content in his predictable, routine existence…until a young girl barrels her way into his dreary life and turns it upside down.Harper is witty, smart, free-spirited—but most of all, stubborn.
Baffled by her need to gain his friendship, Irwin does his best to brush her off, but Harper refuses to budge. In fact, it only makes her latch onto him even more. Friendship, after all, can be found in the most unusual places.
