Call Me Henbane
A kick-butt adventure with "Karate Kid" vibes
All Maeve Emerson wants is to take her black belt skills to an exclusive karate camp in Kyoto, Japan. But before she can pay the 600-dollar deposit, the money she worked for years to save is gone in an instant—stolen by the rich and popular Harmoni Strauss. AKA, the worst person alive.
It's hopeless. Maeve's social anxiety and status as first-rate loner prevent her from confronting Harmoni head-on.
Until a gift from Maeve's beloved grandmother gives her some serious superhuman ninja moves. Not like the kind she does in Sensei Kovac's classes—the death-defying kind. The kind that enables her to save Grandma from a deadly home invasion. The kind that might help her get back her stolen cash, or even get that hottie Dean Hawks to finally notice her.
When her best-laid plans backfire, and Maeve ends up rescuing her enemy instead of finding her missing money, she becomes Bath Creek City's own vigilante known as Henbane.
But the problem of the stolen money begins to fade as attacks on Grandma keep happening. The police can't seem to figure out who's behind the attacks. There is something of extraordinary value within the 18th century house where Grandma lives and someone is getting desperate to find it.
Unless Maeve can find out what it is, and stop the dangerous people who threaten Grandma's life and livelihood, Maeve could lose everything… including the person she loves most in the entire world.
