Murder the Dream Guy


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Deemed hopeless by her family and that she was better off married when her fourth novel continued to be a flop, aspiring author Xiang Wan begins to doubt herself. While feeling conflicted about continuing her dream as an author, things take an unexpected turn when a dazzling guy appears before her and takes her to the police station.

“What? I’m the primary suspect in a murder case?”

A murder has taken place and the details are eerily similar to the details of her latest novel. The dazzling guy turns out to be a talented detective with a hidden identity who is assigned to investigate the case. From then on, her life turns topsy-turvy.

In the beginning, she seeks the detective’s protection by requesting to stay overnight at his place.

“Detective Bai, is it not the duty of the police to protect the witness when her life is in extreme danger?”

She ends up staying at his house overnight because of various reasons, such as—

Scenario 1:
Xiang Wan: “Detective Bai, you have no right to detain me…”

Detective Bai: “I remember you’re the one who requested to stay at my house?”

Scenario 2:
Xiang Wan: “There’s no need for that. Detective Bai, I can return…”

Detective Bai: “You’ve not cleared of suspicion yet. If something happens, at least you’ll have an alibi.”

Scenario 3:
Xiang Wan: “Why did you bring me to your house again?”

Detective Bai: “You haven’t released a new chapter today!” he said, enunciating each syllable, “I want to read your latest chapter before telling you of our latest investigations.”

I wonder why this is not popular yet! There's comedy and mystery plus romance. I have to say that I totally did not expect to laugh when reading this novel, where's the comedy tag! I would say that the it's slightly creepy, not scary or anything but it occasionally gives me the creeps like those unknown phone calls in crime dramas lol. I suspect the novel is based on multiple crimes all connected to a big one targeting the FL. Looking at the amount of chapters (which is rare for... more>> crime novels, I think they are usually less than 200 chapters), I hope the suspense and comedy remains. <<less

Awesome story. Realistic plot and characters. The romance so far is quite slow and I’m not greatly impressed with the ML in that department. I’m enjoying this immensely

I don't usually write reviews this early into the story. But as of chapt 34, I find myself really enjoying this crime/ mystery story. It's been some time since I've found a cnovel of this genre with good translations! I wish there were more crime novels translated! The crime plot isnt merely a side plot, it takes front seat and is the catalyst that spurs the MCs interactions/relationship. Plot is pretty thrilling and suspenseful with many twists and turns. I like the odd pair up of an unwilling author (FL)... more>> and the perceptive Detective (ML). This unusual combo made solving crimes take on a unique angle with slightly unorthodox means. No annoying side calefares too. Which is a major plus. I hope I didn't jinx this. The ML makes me swoon, he is definitely the tsundere type, which is right up my alley. I have a feeling the romance will be a slow burn.

I hope as the story progress, it will gradually take on a darker tone and amp up on the mystery and thrill! <<less

This story is a hoot. Out of all the stories I'm reading right now, this is the one I most look forward to updates on. The protag is easy to relate to, and the side characters are memorable and fun.
