China Rich Girlfriend
Kevin Kwan, bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians - now a smash hit international film - is back with a wickedly funny new novel of social climbing, secret emails, art-world scandal, lovesick billionaires, and the outrageous story of what happens when Rachel Chu, engaged to marry Asia's most eligible bachelor, discovers her birth father.
On the eve of her wedding to Nicholas Young, heir to one of the greatest fortunes in Asia, Rachel should be over the moon. She has a flawless Asscher-cut diamond from JAR, a wedding dress she loves more than anything found in the salons of Paris and a fiance willing to sacrifice his entire inheritance in order to marry her. But Rachel still mourns the fact that her birth father, a man she never knew, won't be able to walk her down the aisle. Until: a shocking revelation draws Rachel into a world of Shanghai splendour beyond anything she has ever imagined.
Here we meet Carlton, a Ferrari-crashing bad boy known for Prince Harry-like antics; Colette, a celebrity girlfriend chased by fevered paparazzi; and the man Rachel has spent her entire life waiting to meet: her father. Meanwhile, Singapore's It Girl, Astrid Leong, is shocked to discover that there is a downside to having a newly minted tech billionaire husband. A romp through Asia's most exclusive clubs, auction houses and estates, China Rich Girlfriend brings us into the elite circles of Mainland China, introducing a captivating cast of characters and offering an inside glimpse at what it's like to be gloriously, crazily, China-rich.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Hand-pulled noodles topped with lobster. Diamonds the size of meatballs. Enough luxury brand names to fill a penthouse apartment. A department store’s worth of snarky putdowns and high drama. Like his bestselling debut, Crazy Rich Asians, Kevin Kwan’s second novel is delirious fun with a side of nighttime soap opera. While China Rich Girlfriend revolves around the same characters as the earlier book—primarily NYU professor Nick Young, the scion of one of the wealthiest families in Asia, and his American-born girlfriend, Rachel Chu—anyone can jump right into this modern-day farce and have a ball.
Loved this one more
To me this was better than first book.
So worth it!
This was the type of book I had been looking
An easy to read with detail that took me to another place, can’t wait to see this one at the movies as well.
