The entire Shang-Young clan has convened from all corners of the globe to stake claim on the massive fortune of Su Yi, their matriarch. With each family member vying to inherit Tyersall Park-- a trophy estate on 64 prime acres in the heart of Singapore-- Nicholas Young's childhood home turns into a hotbed of speculation and sabotage. As her relatives fight over heirlooms, Astrid Leong is at the center of her own storm, desperately in love with her old sweetheart Charlie Wu, but tormented by her ex-husband. Meanwhile Kitty Pong, married to China's second richest man, billionaire Jack Bing, still feels second best next to her new step-daughter, famous fashionista Colette Bing.
"[A] novel of a family riven by fortune, an ex-wife driven psychotic with jealousy, a battle royal fought through couture gown sabotage, and the heir to one of Asia's greatest fortunes locked out of his inheritance" -- provided by publisher.

The entire Crazy Rich Asian series is to say the least, amazing. Kevin Kwan is a true entertainer with his writing. His characters are so well defined and his story with this family did not disappoint. It is so so good right from the first book to this last one. I really hope he writes more and I would personally love to see a stand alone novel about Astrid (she was my favorite in the series) but all characters have merit and make the story what it is. Do not pass up this series! Also can't wait for the movie which is currently in production.

If your summer needs an injection of glitz, glamour and humour, stop everything and pick up this series. Though this is the 3rd in the series, I'm happy to report that the books stand alone beautifully; if you doubt you'll ever read *Crazy Rich Asians* or *China Rich Girlfriend*, go ahead and dive straight into this one.

Rich People Problems follows a many-branched family whose failing matriarch is slated to leave behind an estate in Singapore worth billions. Various family members are dragged through screamingly funny indignities - and some actual drama - in the race to capture Tyersall Park. Through it all, the prose is sumptuously, snarkily slathered with all the biggest brand names and designers, most glamorous hotels, and all the most ridiculous trappings of the lives of the super-rich. Honestly, this is the most literary fun you can have in hardcover. Grab a cold glass of pinot, put your feet up on your lounge chair, dig in, and indulge your schadenfreude.

I read all three books by Kevin Kwan and they are great. Hope he does more.

I love this series! It shows you the extravagant and luxurious life of the "crazy rich asians". It's addictive and fun.

If you have a beach trip planned, but you’re feeling a bit trepidatious about taking your Twitter feed, a newspaper, or magazine for light reading material in case your sunny glow is invaded by terrible news, don’t despair. For readers who’ve loved Danielle Steel for her glamour, or the Shopaholic series for the sheer fun of spending a couple hundred pages rolling in brand names, there’s a relatively new author you’re going to want to try: Kevin Kwan.

With the publication of Rich People Problems, his Crazy Rich Asians series is now three snarky, sparkly, sumptuously jetset books long. Though this is the third in the series, I'm happy to report the books stand alone beautifully; if you doubt you'll ever read Crazy Rich Asians or China Rich Girlfriend, go ahead and dive straight into this one. Like a lot of romance series, reading them out of order won’t ruin things so much as drive you to get caught up on gossip you missed in the last one.

Rich People Problems follows a multi-branched family in Singapore, whose failing matriarch is slated to leave behind an estate worth billions. Various family members are dragged through screamingly funny indignities - and some actual drama - in the race to capture Tyersall Park. Through it all, the prose is sumptuously, snarkily slathered with all the biggest brand names and designers, most glamorous hotels, and all the most ridiculous trappings of the lives of the super-rich. Honestly, this is the most literary fun you can have in hardcover. Grab a cold glass of pinot, put your feet up on your lounge chair, dig in, and indulge your schadenfreude. You won’t even wonder what bad news you’re missing.
