Marcy's neighbor asks her to be her "sassy best friend." Jasmine has been reading urban fantasy for her thesis and thinks she's a paranormal investigator. At first, Marcy humors her because it beats what's on TV, but then they meet a were-beaver, battle some drones (or fairies?), and Marcy starts to worry about "aiding and abetting." Can this modern Sancho save the town and her Quixote from each other? Note: This novel is a complete draft, but I'm revising chapters before posting them.
