China Rich Girlfriend
Book Review - China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan
I'm moving right along with Kevin Kwan's Rich Asians series (if you haven't read my review of the first book, Crazy Rich Asians, read it here.) China Rich Girlfriend is the second book in this series. Note: this review may have some spoilers for Crazy Rich Asians, so proceed with caution. I won't give too much away, but be warned if you prefer not to know what happens in the first book.
We continue with the story of Rachel and Nick - two college professors living in New York. At the beginning of this book we find out they are engaged to be married, despite Nick's parents disapproving of the union. You might remember from the first book, we find out who Rachel's father really is and in China Rich Girlfriend, Rachel meets him (through a crazy orchestration by Nick's mom) and he invites Nick and Rachel to visit him in China after their wedding. But as we learned from the first book, crazy rich Asians cause lots of problems for Rachel and Nick and the same happens the second time around.
I am really enjoying this series. I gave this book 4/5 stars because I don't think it was quite as good as the first book (sequels are rarely better...am I right?) But rest assured it is worth reading the series (at least the first two books! I'll get back to you on the third book, soon.) I read China Rich Girlfriend on a family vacation in Florida and it was a perfect beach read: quick and easy with an entertaining story that leaves you happy in the end.
