I really love this series. In book three of Kevin Kwan’s “Crazy Rich Asians,” Ah Ma is dying. Everyone descends upon Tyersall Hall to say goodbye and stake their rights in the Will. Nick and Astrid find themselves banished from their ancestral home. It takes a couple of servants to sneak them in to see Ah Ma one last time before she dies. What erupts afterward is the same old drama. They fight over what will happen next with their legacy. Astrid is plunged into a sex tape scandal and could lose custody of her son. Nick is trying to amend past wrongs with Ah Ma and keep her legacy alive. Eddie is his usual, “It’s all about me. Pay attention to me.” Kitty is trying to destroy her step-daughter, Colette, the same woman behind Rachel’s poisoning in book two. Colette has also found an upgrade and a way back into society, but she’s looking at it from a global scale after her humiliation in China. All in all, it’s your basic everyday billionaire drama. You know, the kind of tabloid gossip you can’t look away from. It’s Gossip Girl Asian style.[Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, I may receive a commission.]
I love the Kevin Kwan series about insanely rich Asians and how they live, invest, make money, and spend money. A mom with an Hermes Birkin obsession (and has a whole closet full of them), boys who love their luxury cars, young women who love every luxury designer look? I mean…it’s every fashionista’s dream book (like the Shopaholic series, but these people have the money to spend it). This is book two in Kwan’s series. In book two, Rachel and Nick head to China on their honeymoon where she has found she has a brother, but more importantly, she’s discovered who her father is. They are led into the world of the Chinese billionaires and their extravagant homes, airplanes, and lifestyle. Rachel is there to see her father, but there is a plot to keep her from ever seeing him, and that may cost her life.
