This is a very fluffy story of a cute couple. Just for the readers who say there is barely any plot, keep in mind that this is a slice of life....

Anyways, although I am the translator of this series, I tend not to read ahead. So I'm just as blind as ya'll.

The first chapter is a lot of information, but after that, it's just a simple novel. Enjoy!

I just finished this story from raw and I 100% recommend this to any readers out there who like romance and fluffy story.

I like how loyal the ML is to the MC. How sweet he is to her and even though he don't know anything aside from killing, but for her, he learned how to cook (they said that he cooks like professional), how to farm, and even turning his back on his own riches (the money he accumulated for being assassin) just to make hersure happy.

There might be times... more>> that there are misunderstanding due to him, who don't know how toto express his thoughts and feelings but overall, their story is satisfying.

Their romance is smooth sailing, like they really don't have love rival (the only was Lu Wan'er but she really did nothing, she's more like an *insert character* in the story), and even though knowing their family background, their family allowed them to continue their love.

If you will ask me what is the thing I don't like in this story is most chapters are about them eating here and eating there hahaha maybe the author loves to eat, right? XD

I think this story should be R-15? Well, at first there is no mushy wushy part but when their children born, there will always part where they always have intense scene xD


a little bit spoiler about their life background.

The MC was actually long lost daughter of a king (?) /prince, a relatives of the emperor (I'm not quite sure what their status is) while the ML is a long lost son of an emperor of other country, I think he is supposed to be the crown prince but he doesn't want to be a prince and still remain in the small town/village where they stay.

They will have three children: Lin Long and Lin Xiao are twins and Lin Xi.

Lin Long even she's the only girl, she became the successor of their assassin group (i forgot what it called).

Read if you like:

  • Slice of life (seriously, there was one chapter that just described their newly renovated house)
  • No love triangles (at least, none so far... *crosses fingers)
  • Tsundere male leads (watching the ML slowly melting into a puddle of fluff was literally 80% of the entertainment)
  • Nice, but no-nonsense female leads
Don't read if you don't like any of the above.

But seriously, I urge you to give this story a try! It's not a martial arts story where the transmigrated female lead gets revenge on her... more>> entire family. It's not one of those cultivating stories where the transmigrated female lead has insane cheats and a spirit beast companion or two. What this is, is a heartwarming story about a girl who only knows how to embroider and an assassin who only knows how to kill, and how they fall in love and live out the rest of their days together.

This is the mac and cheese of stories, it's an afghan blanket in a dark winter night, it's chicken soup when you're running a cold.

Oh, and did I mention they have two pet snow white wolves? They're the cutest balls of fluff ever, because of course they would be. <<less

Ay... I thought this story would have more realism or farming/building aspects than it actually does.
(╯≧Д≦)╯︵ ┻━┻ #disappoint#

But if you like fairy tales...

Basically, this is a very very very sugar-filled slice-of-life. It is not really about farming, there isn't much plot either. It is simply about a beautiful girl with the best embroidery skills who gets together with a handsome man with the best martial arts skills. Oh, the girl is transmigrated. But anyway, they move into a village and live a very very very fluffy and romantic... more>> life in harmony with pretty much everyone.

Don't get me wrong, fluff is great. But this novel is such an unending river of syrup with nothing to mix it up, readers might need a break now and then to rescue their rotted teeth.

Also I think the romance resonates better with younger readers, because you have moments like this:


MC feels insecure because she's been told that her personality is too low-key and unattractive to men. So MC wants to ask what the ML likes about her.

ML: "You don't know how beautiful you are."

.... wow not SHALLOW at all. Physical beauty is everything!!!!! (Yes, in Chinese, "beautiful" refers exclusively to physical appearance. It is not a metaphor for something deeper.)


Since there are no obstacles, the main couple pretty much get the best furniture, fix up the best house/scenery next to the best part of the river, basically achieve the best possible outcomes with very little effort. The guy's martial arts are so outstanding, just like a fairy. He can leap 15 meters in one jump, "cut" down an evergreen tree with one strike of his bare hands, and carry back a wagon-load of tree trunks from miles away (without the wagon) in a few hours.

I wish there was some comedy to cut this up... <<less

Im already in love with this novel, it reminds me of another story called Kanata Kara which I adore.

MC is from a prominent family with unsurpassed skills in embroidery as the synopsis detailed, after becoming a victim of foul play she is reborn into another world where fantasy like creatures and people with powerful abilities exist.

Level headed, taking a pragmatic approach she ventures forth with very little and encounters many interesting and unusual things, her meeting with an injured man sees her connect with him in ways we are still... more>> yet to uncover :D

I enjoy the interesting characters, and since there are only 2 so far I look forward in seeing them both develop :D Su is very adorable, a floofy kind of character that is endearing with her ability to be positive and ready to get things done. Lin is the silent brooding type that seems at odds with this inner self, this guy needs to be more honest lol.

Su has 2 other companions that you will learn about as you read the novel :P so far there are only 9 chapters, hopefully we will see it spamming the Novel updates with multiple chapter releases! One can hope!. <<less

Rating: 2.5/5 or 3/5

Why? Because the little things ruined everything for me.

... more>>

+He doesn't let her work in the house even she insists. When he wouldn't let her do chores (like cooking, a lot of cleaning, etc, etc) she gave up and explained herself by saying that a man who does that deserves devotion. She was fierce the first time she met him and then never fierce again smh. Am I the only one bothered by this? As a person who likes to clean and help my spouse, I'd be pretty annoyed but after being 'insistent' for a single chapter or two, she gave up and then justified herself for quitting.

+She makes really, really, really dumb decisions. Even as a spoiled lady, I'm pretty sure you can recognize the fact that since your husband used to be an assassin, he should have assassin friends right? NO! Just let that 'friend' of his waltz through the door because who cares, amirite????!! When an assassin knocked on her door telling that he was an old friend of her husband's, she doesn't even doubt him, she just lets him in. If something had happened, I probably would've dropped the damn story sooner but thank heavens.

+He keeps things from her. They're all 'let's be honest with each other' and then several chapters later, he doesn't tell her that those 'friends' were his colleagues, doesn't tell her anything about her identity as someone famous and wanted and purposefully withholds information from her. It's not protecting her if she needs to know it.

+Also, she's fifteen and pregnant!!! Does no one else find this appalling?! I get it, it's set in Ancient China but you couldn't make her two years older??? Why is this grown *ss man doing the do with a teenager?! He's twenty-three and she'S FIFTEEN I'M GOING TO HURT SOMEONE!!! Why is there the need to be such a huge age difference?! No, I don't care if she might be older in her past life, her body is still fifteen and he thinks it is.

(Some small things: she found an OP liquid that was named about fairies but she doesn't use it anymore after she healed the ML. It's nearly never mentioned again. Another is the Wolf King. I dunno if it's going to change but it really makes me wonder why the f**k he's important because he just made the MC's wolf/dog pregnant and that was it, I'm so confused. The last one is about the fact that there's basically no face-slapping. The MC gets tricked or harassed kind of easily and it makes me wince.)


But anyways, there are some good points too, even if the bad points stained the whole thing for me.


+Personally, I like the peacefulness of it. Some would say that it's boring but I think it's relaxing.

+Love, love, love the fact that there are female friendships! Some of the characters' thinking is really logical, like how a woman inconvenienced the MC and then realized it and berated herself because she (MC) was a newlywed. Honestly, felt like it was great that we had some female friendships and not everyone is out to get her.

+They're really sweet together, even if he lies to her. You can tell they care for each other, even though it all happened hella fast.

+It happened hella fast. That was better than them still not confessing after three lifetimes, seven hundred chapters and five novels but I also would've liked it a little more if they had spent more time together. They confessed their love/got married (I can't remember tbh) in less than 20 chapters.

+The villains (I think it's only been a small gang and a jealous girl so far) have all been dealt with and easy to deal with but I feel like more is coming. There isn't any unnecessary drama but sometimes, some of it can get ridiculous. Proceed with caution.

+The MC isn't too badly OP. She just has good embroidery skills and a few others. Her husband is a different case and I don't want to think about him.


And of course, I've only read to about chapter 83 so I don't know if it's going to change but my review is for you guys to see. I rated it pretty low because I got very irritated as I was reading the last few chapters before I dropped it.

This should be used to pass the time. Try it if you want! There seems to be conflict in the future so you can get ready for that. <<less

This novel is so-so for me. It's pretty boring even for a slice of life story. There's no tension at all, and there are tons of details that don't add anything to the story.

I expected it to be similar to Fields of Gold with romance added in, but so far the MC and ML have no ambition to move up in life. It's really too monotonous for me.

Sadly, this novel has lost all interest for me. Once the main characters move to the town, they never again experience any difficulties, challenges, strife, or even emotional distress. Everything comes super easily to them. They can grow plants, build houses, start businesses, etc with zero experience and zero problems. Everything they ever find will be a treasure. Everything they ever do will be successful. Everyone they ever meet will love them.

Also, the FL is super spoiled by the ML, and she loses all of her independence, motivation, and... more>> intelligence. (Not even kidding -- she chooses to stop thinking or making any decisions at all.) The ML is no longer conflicted, and he overcomes any dangerous events easily, while never telling his wife anything.

(For example, the author entirely skips over a moment when he falls off a cliff and is presumed dead -- there are zero descriptions about what happened, the FL barely notices, and he comes back the next chapter totally fine with no explanation.) Oh, and it's revealed that the FL is royalty. But there is zero drama involved there -- they just get a ton of money, new extremely loving relatives, everyone instantly accepts them, and there are no worries about their new role or responsibilities.

Basically, this story is a totally unrealistic, fluffy, slice-of-life story where the main characters are loved by everyone, have some of the best luck in the world, and they are rich people living a super easy "slow life" in a poor town.


As of chapter 50, this story stays at the same pace: slow. It is truly just a slice-of-life story in which their daily tasks and necessities are described in extensive detail. To be honest, while this story isn't bad, it has long lost any interest for me. I will probably drop it soon if there's isn't any excitement or change soon.


This was a very pleasant novel. Reading it will put you in a good mood. Can't wait for more!

So far, the tone and genre are mostly slice-of-life and romance. The characters are pure and honest, and so far the story hasn't had much strife. It's just a reincarnated girl and a former assassin starting a new life together -- traveling out of the forest, finding a place to stay, moving into a house, figuring out how to make a living wage, etc.

If anything, the only critism that I have is that some things go too smoothly/easily (a bit hard to believe) and that the two main characters are almost TOO pure. They're so honest and shy and sweet that it'll give you diabetes. It's definitely not just mindless fluff, though... It's easy to accept that maybe, they're just good people.

I can't help but predict that something dramatic is on the way (will either character's past life come back to haunt them?), but for now, things are just nice and simple.

The pacing of this story is good -- not too fast, but also not too slow. Although only 29 chapters are out at the time of this review, it still feels like quite a lot has been done.

The translation quality is also very good. Smooth English with little to no grammar mistakes.

If you're in the mood for something light and simple, give this a try! <<less

Quite a different premise to all the Reincarnation plots. Unlike others who come from either the same world setting or a modern time, the MC is from the 1920s with the unusual background as an expert embroider. The chapter lengths are a decent length, and the translations are smooth. It is a bit of a slow start because the author really takes the time to detail what happened. I hope to read more in the future. Hopefully, a permanent translation group will pick up this project soon.

This is an adorable slice of life, transmigration novel. The story revolves around a transmigrated MC and an ex-assassin ML. ? At first the ML is a silent and unfeeling iceberg, but he gets exceedingly warm (only to the MC though) as time passes by in the novel. The author's writing style and the translator's awesome translating skills makes you feel as if you are inside the story. In the first few chapters, it will be a nice, house-building life, but in the later chapters the drama begins, so the story is a good mix of fluff and drama.

The MC and ML's interactions are quite adorable, and because they are really sweet, it makes the reader eat dogfood. Just be prepared to get diatebes because of their sweetness. ? Major Spoiler Incoming

Though at the end chapters, the MC and ML will switch worlds, so the ML will be the new transmigrator.

Overall it’s a very fluffy story with nothing much happening. The slice of life is very nice, they do use their skills which are considered good but not like the most OP kind which is nice. There’s a bit of plot building now but still very peaceful overall. Some killing etc due to his assassin past but it’s all over quickly and they’re just enjoying their lives now. I recommend this for a chill story to pass some time

This is one of those stories you read when you just want something fluffy, adorable and heartwarming. No side female characters plotting FL's death to get the ML, no jealous suitors regretting how the FL escaped their grasp and plotting to get her back, no jealous step-sisters and step-mothers (well, only at the beginning) to provide continuous tension and drama... no imperial politics or backstabbing characters (so far).

Cute story enough to give you diabetes. This is another world migration but the main character isn't some full blown heavenly assassin lady and won't try to kill her enemies. This story so far is just a cute girl and her shy hasn't having fluffy moments and trying to make it in the world.

The beginning is good, she saves him, survives on her own but then falls in love and gets married, and the story stagnates. The male lead begins to take care of everything, and the female lead becomes useless, and becomes a pet raised with love but without her own opinion.

... more>>

only gives his opinion on trivial things such as the decoration of the house, shopping and how he should be educated with others


The female lead does not need to know what happens so he begins to hide information trying to be fragile to know the truth.

  • Hides that they tried to kidnap her.
  • Who are your parents.
  • as male lead still does not want children and that is why she uses a special method to avoid having them and she thinks that it is her fault that she is not pregnant.
  • What problems are going on and that he almost died and other matters.[/ spoiler]

All this is annoying and gives the feeling that instead of his wife he is his pet.


The other characters are even thinking about whether to train their children to become murderers, without even thinking if she would like her children to dedicate themselves to that.


Her parents' relationship is horrible.

Her father has like a lot of concubines and 9 daughters with them, and he only tells the mother of the protagonist who did it because she wanted to make him jealous. Thanks to this, the protagonist almost died and is separated from her daughter for more than 10 years. And when his father thinks if he should divorce his concubines to forgive him, he thinks that would be shameful and eliminates this idea. He also says that he only listens to the mother only at that moment when they return home he will do what he wants and the mother of the protagonist should apologize.

I really loved the novel, until Su Shuilian decided to have children. It's not the babies that made me change idea, it's more something in the novel that changed.

Su Shuilian and Lin Si Yao are a really cute and loving couple. But I have the impression that Su Shuilian is getting silly and s*upid, and the cause is also her husband hiding thing from her. I don't like the fact that Lin Si Yao keeps doing things behind her back, a couple should share hardship and blessing, and Su Shuillan... more>> should at least be made aware of what's happening.
There is a continuos lack of communication in the novel since the moment when Su Shuilian were planning to have children. Lin Si Yao had been preventing her from getting pregnant, while Su Shillian instead wanted to have children. Then he said an half-lie about his assassin collogues and Su Shuilian is so s*upid that she can't even see their true professions! (Your husband was a killer! What do you think his colleagues do?!).

And now there's the past of the previous body owner. The actual situation could have been better managed if things were made clearer between our couple.
Lin Si Yao wants to hide her, but Su Shuilian wish to affront the situation. It's impossible to escape without them traslocating and Su Shuilian approach is more realistic comparated to that of her husband who is trying to hide the oblivious (Su Shuilian has already been discoverd). However it's still upset me that she's potrayed as a silly woman who gets s*upidly discovered. A talk between the couple would have been better.

My opinion is that they shouldn't go and take an indeffernt stance to cut ties with the family's previous body owner; but they will problably go because of Su Shuilian's kidness and end in a troublesome situation.

Anyway I decided to drop the novel. I preferred the part before where things were simpler. Now thare are assassins, princes and maybe also time travel!
Even if everything has been foreshadowed I still miss the previous simplicity with just the two of them living together with their wolves.

I still gave 4 stars because it's a good story and much better that all the tr*shy cliche novels going around. <<less

M for Mediocre. The main premise of the Book, her reincarnating with 2 wolves and rescues an assassin is completly irrelevent. There is 0 plot to actually make use of ML's assassin identity. It's all just brain dead fluff. This novel reads as if it were meant for a 6 year old. Everything is explained, nothing is implicit. Its like reading her face flushed. Then the sentence right after has like Look how embarrased you made her.

I definitely can feel the love between female lead and male lead. Especially the male lead... he is spoiling his wife so much until made every girl and woman around them envy toward her.... and female reader also! Yeah, every wife want a husband like Lin Si Yao! Haha.

The translation is great! The team really did great job! Keep your work up, team!

But I found something lacking in here...

  1. Assasin Farmer. The tittle clearly said the previous male lead profession and he wanted to be a farmer. I thought that it would emphasize of "farmer life", his problem in farming, farming method etc. but it seemed my thought was wrong.
  2. Conflict. The story is quite slow pace so you'd better wait patiently if you are looking for conflict in this story. In 58 chapters so far there is no major conflict that will harm the characters life or their relationship. Just common love and trust problems in a couple. This is romance story afterall.
But I still want to give 5 stars because I am expecting big conflict in the future. The female lead original body's background is still mistery and... the male lead previous job, assasin, should become a troublesome matter right?

Am I expecting too high? I hope not!

This is such a fluffy slice of life. I really like the main female lead. She has a great temper. The story premise is exactly as the summary describes.

The first chapter felt exceedingly long though, in describing the Republic era lifestyle of the main female lead. But after that, it gets to the main part of the story soon enough.

The Chinese novel is like 170~ chapters long. So far in the 50s chapters, it is still a very fluffy slice of life. The main male lead is basically the exact... more>> man we all want but who doesn't exist... I peeked at the chapter titles for the later chapters, and sure enough, later on by the 90s we might get some drama relating to the two main characters' past lives. <<less
