Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

Rachel Chu is a regular ABC (American Born Chinese) who works hard, but she's nervous about meeting her boyfriend's parents for the first time. Nick comes from one of the wealthiest old-money families in Singapore so naturally he's expected to marry a girl of a certain class, but does Rachel make the grade? His friends and family put her through the wringer. At the same time Nick's cousin Astrid, the Paris Hilton of Singapore, has her own problems. She married Michael, a middle-class guy, who may be having an affair.

The jet set of Asia delivers hilarity via excessive parties, general cattiness and class arrogance. There are gold diggers and good guys, resolute matriarchs and merciless socialites all enmeshed in the trials of being wealthy and in love. Rachel and Astrid's lives are out of control and the results change both women and how they view the world around them, especially the men in their lives.
