What do you get when you put a thick-skinned, acting-dumb constable and the aloof, genius daughter of the Premier in the same town?
For the sake of winning a bet, Lou Chen left her home and crossed into neighboring Liao Yue for some sight-seeing and treasure-hunting. But barely a few days into her trip, she gets embroiled in a mystery murder which leads her to meet a nonchalant, happy-go-lucky constable, who is obviously hiding an astute brain under his flippant appearance.
Turns out that this flippant constable has a birth mystery that links back to some of the most prominent families in Liao Yue. Coincidentally, this constable also seems to have something to do with her sword “Cang Feng” which apparently used to belong to his family before it disappeared 18 years ago.
[Ebook][(Machine Translation & Edited Chapters 1 – 27) (Chapters 28-on)][Summaries][Eng Translation]
This is the fifth novel in the “Mistaken Marriage” series by Qian Lu, and is about Lou Chen, daughter of Qing Ling and Premier Lou in “Record of Washed Away Injustices”. Lou Chen is an outstanding young lady who is highly-skilled in healing, dissecting bodies, martial arts and who possesses a photographic memory to boot. Her only flaw is probably her emotionless face (the author calls her Facial Paralysis ha-ha) which most people outside her family interpret as being aloof and unapproachable.
But to the observant Jian Yan Heng, a lowly constable from a backwater town, he can spot her intelligence and kindness the first time he laid his eyes on her. He tries flirting with her to get a reaction from her, but Miss Facial-Paralysis totally ignores him. And since she is the higher skilled among the two, there is no shortage of arm-twisting, neck-bashing encounters for Jian Yan Heng. Thankfully, our male lead is also a very self-confidant fellow who is not easily intimated by her smarts or by the difference in their social status. Overall, I’ll say this book is good for a casual read and set the stage for the sixth installment of “Mistaken Marriage – Real vs Fake Princess”.
Here is a small passage from the book which I have translated, to give you a peek at the book:
Wow Jian Yan Heng seems so cool and cute at the same time lol. How many books of the mistaken match is the author going to write? 3 books on the sisters and 3 books of their daughters? What about Lou Chen’s brother? Does he get a story too?
about the sixth installment mistaken marriage match, it is about qing feng and the emperor daugther?, is qing feng becoming queen or she just remain being a concubine?
Yes, there are 3 books on the sisters and 3 books on their daughters. I saw some parts of book 6 yesterday (thanks peanuts!) but there is no mention of Lou Xi in it.
There are a lot of take-that! moments in this book where Lou Chen wow the readers with her skills, or her status. But when Lou Xi makes his appearance in the second half of “Pursuit of Murderer”, he is equally if not more awesome. I’m a little disappointed he is not the love interest in book 6.
Hi nayla, I can’t pronounce her name but yes, the 6th book is about Qing Feng n the Emperor’s daughter. There are enough clues in this book for us to figure out that she should be Jian Yan Heng’s cousin.
As for Qing Feng, no, she did not become Empress in book 3, but she has a good ending.
As long as i remember Qing Feng live outside the palace somewhere a beautiful and peaceful place with the emperor….I mean he is still the emperor so ofcouse he live in the palace but he missed Qing feng that’s why seen like when he’s done with his work he stay with Qing Feng…I think that’s cute…There is also book 6?..ohhhhhh!!I can’t wait to read…Who is Jin Yan Heng? Seen like his identity and family history is highlight of this book….Can’t wait to read..Here we go Lou Chen
Hi… this looks hilarious. Is there any ebook link that allows copy + paste? I need to use Google translate to read.
sorry… forgot to thank in advance…
Please give me the link to book 6! I almost complete book 5!
Scroll to the bottom:
Thanks for posting! This book looks promising / hilarious. I hope it doesn’t drag in the middle.
I’m a little confused tho. So initially there are 3 sisters who made a pact and committed suicide together correct? 2 souls from the future (forensic investigator and SWAT officer) get sent back. So the 3rd sister is actually the original character and didn’t die? Not someone from the future?
I’ll get started on this book immediately!!!!
While waiting for book 6, I have decided to summarize the story. Do check out http://cloudmanor.wordpress.com next week for the update.
What is the title of book 6th in this series?
1. Record of the wash grievants
2. Military cousellor
3. Myterious in the emperor harem
4. The pirate’s daughter
5. Pursuit of the muderer
I can recall that in book 3, the author has not revealed how Lou Xi Yan got the baby girl to replace Lou Xi, nor the clue of the baby’s identity.
None in 1-4 volumns describe relationship between Lou Xi and 3rd prince (or 2nd prince) who is adopted son of Qing Feng. Tjis prince has been raised in the palace, by his birth mother who is also one of the emperor’s concubine. I believe he will be the next emperor in order to give Lou Xi a carefree life.
As for the question above, though Qing Feng is not the empress. She is his only wife whom the emperor comes to live with every weekend (3 days a week) and he has no other cocubine), eversince.
She is well aware of political situation if she was to be the empress. Due to the fact that towards outsiders’ perception, her elder sister married the prime minister (i.e., Lou Xi Yan), while her younger sister married the military supreme commander.
wuah, thanks moonblossom. i just read your reply. owh, i just get it when i read a spoiler for the 3rd book. the daughter that qing feng raised it’s just an adoptive daughter not their real daughter. can i ask you who is qing feng adoptive son is? if she has an adoptive son from another concubine means that she befriend with some concubine in the palace. please be kind to explain it to me ^_^
Hello! This book looks awesome.
I have some questions:
So, Lou Xi is the name of Qing Feng and YHT son? What is the name of Qing Lin and Lou Xi Yan son then? Does Lou Xi ever learns about his true parents? And can anyone share with me the link to book four? Thank you!
