Blue Orca (Hourglass, #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
AN UNFORGIVABLE BETRAYAL sets Mimi on a quest for vengeance. Janet killed Liza. Now Mimi has to kill Conan Casey, Janet's lover.

Mimi follows them to Shanghai. She's given a new identity and perfects her powers of seduction until she can manipulate men at will. Mimi is installed as a hostess at the elite Sky Club, keeping company with Shanghai's most privileged men as she awaits the arrival of her prey.

She catches the attention of a patron before her mission is complete. Thomas falls under Mimi's spell and proposes exclusivity. Will she take his offer? Or will she seek vengeance in a foreign land despite all the odds?

Blue Orca by Scarlet Risque

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Blue Orca (Hourglass, #2)This was an adult contemporary story, about a girl trained to be an assassin.

Mimi was an okay character and she seemed dedicated to her job. I was surprised at how often she suggested killing people though when she’d had such a hard job killing a chicken during training.

The storyline in this was about Mimi being rescued by The White Queen, and being trained to kill. She was then sent on a mission in China, trying to find Janet (from book 1) who had run off and married her target instead of killing him. The pace in this was a bit slow again though, and it made the book drag a bit.

The ending to this was okay, but ended up being quite similar to book 1.

6 out of 10
