    This is a really good series,surprisingly. It has some parallels with EER, but the setting is essentially different.Great dialogues!!
    Synopsis
    In the winter of Taikang Year 3, a girl pays a visit to her future in-laws, the Ning Family of Beiliu, Yangcheng.

    After her engagement was denied, the girl decided to hang herself in front of the Ning Family to show them her sincerity.

    When the girl who had died opened her eyes once more, many people’s fates were changed forever.

    Tru. But I kinda dislike the style of the author where he/she just plunges you into the scene. I.e. in Chapter 6, suddenly the MC is in the lantern festival but in Chapter 5 she's battling the Ning lady.

    Ehh. That synopsis is so useless. It doesn't tell me anything about the story. Do they really expect people to read a novel they don't even know what it is about? A useless synopsis is only OK when it's a xianxia/xuanhuan kinda novel. Since they are all the same, you know what you'll mostly see while reading it but this? Nothing.
    I hope someone can give a better synopsis, at least for the first parts of the story

    well,that is another style of writing~~ For series that try to show the mc to be smart,this kind of style is easier~~

    Th prologue is missing, which is probably why so many people got confused. The prologue describes what happened to the original Miss, the suicide and then the MC coming to possess the body. The translator skipped it for some reason and plunged straight to chapter 1, which looked a bit abrupt.

    I like it because the narrative resembles a bit the style of western authors
    I'm really curious about all the subplots that have been hinted at so far
    well the only sure thing is that she'll go to the capital, but who she was in the past is a very slow burn reveal >.<

    I was wondering why the backstory of the MC was so vague. Currently, it seems like the author is trying to be super secretive about who the current soul in JJL's body.

    @ludagad Have you read the prologue? If so, could you summarize it?

    I only skimmed through it because I wasn't too invested in the story. Basically, the miss was raving about that family wanting to break the engagement. She wanted to stage a suicide to scare them, so she made the maid stay close to help her when she started suffocating (suicide by hanging). But something went wrong, she started kicking around as she wanted to breathe and the maid couldn't get a hold of her to help her off the rope. By the time she got help, the miss was dead. And a short while later, her eyes opened, but they seemed different. The prologue didn't say anything about the MC's previous life, I think. So maybe it'll get revealed in bits and pieces as the author decides.

    Ah, thanks! It's kind of a bummer that we still don't know much about MC's past life. I can understand the author not wanting to just dump a bunch of info about MC all at once, but the slow reveal is killing me. Haha.

    The only real issue I have with this story so far is that Liu'er is almost too stupid to live...
    Other than that it so far is probably one of the better stories of this type that I've found through NU.

    i would really like to know who the ML is too, but this from what I've heard this isn't a romance driven story. So, it may be some time before we know who ML is.
