Cape Wolfe na­tive au­thor Mima has whipped out her eighth book, “The Devil Is Smooth Like Honey.”

Cape Wolfe na­tive Michelle Arse­nault, who writes un­der the name Mima, has not let the dust set­tle as she whips out her eighth book, “The Devil is Smooth Like Honey.”

The se­quel to “Al­ways Be a Wolf” that was pub­lished in May, fol­lows in the foot­steps of fic­tional char­ac­ter Jorge Her­nan­dez.

“Jorge is very charm­ing. I de­scribe him as hav­ing a Hol­ly­wood smile and he tends to win peo­ple over this way,” ex­plained Mima. “But for those who he can’t win over, he tends to be some­what in­tim­i­dat­ing, dom­i­neer­ing and very di­rect. He’s a smart guy, and al­ways play­ing close at­ten­tion to peo­ple around him.” Ac­cord­ing to Mima, the dark and edgy read takes a stab at con­tro­ver­sial top­ics that in­clude the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal in­dus­try. “I did some re­search re­gard­ing Mex­i­can cul­ture, since the main char­ac­ter is from Mex­ico, as well as the drug car­tels, le­gal­iza­tion of pot in Canada, since that came up in the story, too,” she said.

“The book moves quickly, and ac­tu­ally that’s why I am cur­rently work­ing on a con­tin­u­a­tion. I just had too much ma­te­rial for one book be­cause it moved so fast.”

Mima is an “In­die” writer who is killing it as self-pub­lish­ing, and her fans reach as far as Aus­tralia.

The first book she penned, “Fire,” was pub­lished in 2010, and is gen­eral fic­tion. But “The Devil Is Smooth Like Honey” is far more of a gritty adult read that skill­fully digs up mur­der, may­hem, and ro­mance.

at all on­line re­tail­ers, in­clud­ing Chap­ters, Ama­zon, iTunes, and Barnes & No­ble.

“El narco. A mon­ster. Un di­ablo. Jorge Her­nan­dez had been called many things and it al­ways made him laugh. If there was one word that could be used to de­scribe him, it would be un­touch­able. Cor­rupt politi­cians com­bined with his charm­ing dis­po­si­tion had contributed to Jorge’s suc­cess, but it was of­ten the un­der­ly­ing threats be­hind his hand­some smile that sealed the deal. He was un­stop­pable.”
