Crazy Rich Asians

A novel by Kevin Kwan.

Kevin Kwan

When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she might one day marry. What she doesn't know is that Nick's family home happens to look like a palace, that she'll ride in more private planes than cars, and that with one of Asia's most eligible bachelors on her arm, Rachel might as well have a target on her back.

From the book

"You sure about this?" Rachel asked again, blowing softly on the surface of her steaming cup of tea. They were sitting at their usual window table at Tea & Sympathy, and Nick had just invited her to spend the summer with him in Asia.

"Rachel, I'd love it if you came," Nick reassured her. "You weren't planning on teaching this summer, so what's your worry? Think you won't be able to handle the heat and humidity?"
