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 fiancé 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 splendor 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.

Fun Story. Discontinuity of narrators.
I enjoyed the book. Not as fun as the first book. I was disappointed that a new narrator was used. She did a great job, but hearing the characters voices with different accents and intonations than I became familiar with during the first book made it hard for me to become engaged with the audiobook for the first half.

Rachel Reduced to a Gawking Twit
What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed the book but was so disappointed that Rachel has been reduced to a gawking twit - standing around and saying "wowie" to whatever spectacle is in front of her. She was such a well developed character in the first book that this is a real shame. The author uses her almost entirely as a device to represent the reader's awe in the face material excess. I think the narrator exacerbates this in her interpretation of Rachel. She reads her like a teenage voice rather than an adult woman. Lydia Look does an amazing job with all of the other characters so this is just a bad choice because otherwise she is a phenomenal narrator. All that being said I would read through whatever it takes to get to Astrid - what a great character. Looking forward to the next installation!
