This is a solo deck for Wendy based on synergy between Madame Labranche and Dark Horse. I've played through every campaign scenario with her and found her to be quite durable and reliable working on her own (as she should be!)
Your very first XP buys should be to replace both Hard Knocks with Plucky, and get Scrapper--then you can pump any of the 4 skill test types. With Madame Labranche and/or Lone Wolf in play, that gives you an income of 2 supply/turn to blow on skill boosts and cheap events until you trigger Dark Horse again.
Next you should drop the two Flashlight for Lockpicks. With Wendy's base stats that lets you investigate at a skill of 7, or 9 with Dark Horse active (!). Scavenging and Quick Thinking can trigger reliably at that level, letting you recur Wendy's Amulet or take free actions, respectively.
You can choose a different set of events or skills as you like, but I wouldn't recommend anything that costs more than 2 supplies and/or requires you to have supplies available AFTER a test has been failed (like "Look what I found!").
I've found Fight or Flight pairs well with Cheap Shot--once you've taken some brain damage, it lets you knee Cnidathqua in the groin with a boost of twice your current horror, which helps mitigate Wendy's godawful Fight value of 1. Fight or Flight can also give the impoverished and more mentally unstable an entire turn's worth of +1 damage Fire Axe murder mayhem to play with.
Events that attach to locations, like Hiding Spot and Snare Trap, are especially useful with Wendy's Amulet in play because after they are triggered and removed from play they go to the top of your discard pile instead of the bottom of your draw deck. This allows Wendy to play them over and over again. I can see a variation of this deck where Wendy poops out trap doors and booby traps everywhere she goes like it's an Eldritch Horror Home Alone movie.
If you're looking to give Wendy a whirl, this is a good deck to start with. Try it out and let us know what you think!
