China Rich Girlfriend

1 Comment

Kevin Kwan really fought his niche with this series. They are really fascinating and entertaining! China Rich Girlfriend picks up where Crazy Rich Asians left off but I felt like it’s not as focused on Nick and Rachel. It’s mainly the same characters with a few new ones thrown in. I was glad to have a character recap at the beginning of the book as a reminder of the main characters back-stories and relationships to one another.

Nick and Rachel are planning their wedding but Nick has only invited a couple of family members who were not concerned that Rachel was not from a prominent Asian family. But word gets out about the wedding and, of course, drama ensues. I’ll go ahead and tell you as well that they find Rachel’s real father (hence the new characters) so she and Nick end up honeymooning to Asia. There, they get to spend time with old and new friends and new family. But, again, there is drama. So much drama, in fact, that someone almost dies. Don’t worry, I won’t tell you who. All in all, it is a mostly happy ending but I am excited to see what the third book brings. Because I cannot imagine what the level of drama could be bumped up to. It almost reminds me of Gossip Girl on steroids and with adults instead of teens (side note – new Gossip Girl coming to HBO?! Anyone?!).

Great summer/beach read and I can’t wait to read the next one!
