Wishin' and Hopin': An Unexpected Mystery & Fairytale

Goodreads blurb: "T
his suspense-packed sequel to Pride and Prejudice recasts Darcy and Elizabeth as a husband and wife detective team —the Nick and Nora of England’s Regency era. "
Nick and Nora murder mystery? Be still my heart! I need to buy this one immediately.

...

Goodreads blurb: "
After a fall, CC is whisked away to a hospital. As she drifts in and out of consciousness, she is haunted by vivid dreams that seem strange—yet somehow familiar. Thus begins CC’s emotional journey back to a privileged life lived eight hundred years ago during the Song dynasty."
I love this cover, concept, and blurb.
