Summary From The Book: 

It's the eve of Rachel Chu's wedding, and she should be over the moon. She has a flawless oval-cut diamond, a wedding dress she loves, and a fiance willing to thwart his meddling relatives and give up one of the biggest fortunes in Asia in order to marry her. Still, Rachel mourns the fact that her birth father, a man she never knew, won't be there to walk her down the aisle. 

Then a chance accident reveals his identity. Suddenly, Rachel is drawn into a dizzying world of Shanghai splendor, a world where people attended church in a penthouse, where exotic cars race down the boulevard, and where people aren't just crazy rich...they're China rich. 

My Thoughts: 

Reading the summary for China Rich Girlfriend did not give me any ideas on how the story will be plotted. For me this is more exciting than the first book. 

The front cover is again another Asian girl looking rich and it suits the title of the book. 

For this book, I will categorize it under Young Adult. 

The point of view for the book changes on different major characters just like the first book. I am now more familiar with the characters so the family tree map is not really needed. 

My favorite characters are Astrid and Charlie, I cannot wait to turn page by page of their story. It was like finding the love at the wrong time. 

My favorite scene is when Rachel learns about her true parentage and meeting them. I can strongly feel her emotions. 

If I will explain the reason of the title, I might give away some spoiler. All I can say is the title is also obvious for the plot of the story. 

The book China Rich Girlfriend is a combination of comedy, romance, drama, and a little heart-pumping scenes. 

My Favorite Line/s:

"People are messy. Life gets messy. Things are not always going to work out perfectly just because you want them too." 

Rating: 5/5 because this is so much better than the first book Crazy Rich Asians! I cannot wait to read the next book, Rich People Problems!

Recommendation: This book is for people who wanted to read something that can make you feel the personality of each characters in the book and find someone that you can relate on. Also, it will expose you more on Chinese culture.
