With the strongest opening of a romantic comedy in the last several years, it seems like this was already a foregone conclusion, but now it’s official. If you didn’t already know it, the book that spawned the film is actually part of a trilogy written by Kevin Kwan. The second book in the series is called “China Rich Girlfriend” and the third is called “Rich People Problems.”
Here’s the synopsis for China Rich Girlfriend
It’s the eve of Rachel Chu’s wedding, and she should be over the moon. She has a flawless Asscher-cut diamond, a wedding dress she loves, and a fiancé 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 birthfather, 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 attend church in a penthouse, where exotic cars race down the boulevard, and where people aren’t just crazy rich … they’re China rich.
