With his books Crazy Rich Asians and China Rich Girlfriend, author Kevin Kwan sucked us into the beguiling and theatrical world of the filthy rich Shang-Young clan. We were introduced to fortune-obsessed cousins, bridal shower sabotages, and luxurious penthouses with built-in elevators for cars. We fell in love with fish-out-of-water Rachel Chu, Singapore’s most eligible bachelor Nicholas Young, former soap opera actress and extravagant spendthrift Kitty Pong, the catty celebrity Colette Bing, and the rest of Kwan’s comical cast of wealthy characters. And with the way the previous installment left us hanging, we know the saga is far from over.

The author has perpetually teased us with a third book along with a film franchise. While the latter is still in the works, the next chapter of the Crazy Rich series finally has a release date. Titled Rich People Problems, the book is slated to be released on May 23, 2017, but you may subscribe to local release updates on the National Bookstore website or pre-order on Amazon. Kwan excitedly shared the cover—still featuring a lady in a bun, sunglasses, and immaculate earrings (Astrid Leong, perhaps?)—on his Instagram account.

Watch the cover reveal below:

Through publisher Penguin Random House, we’ve discovered that the next novel revolves around the massive fortune that dying matriarch Su Yi gets set to leave. Of course that makes each member of her family desperately attempt to inherit a handsome share of the money plus the coveted 64-acre Tyersall Park. Meanwhile, Astrid faces battles of her own with her ex-husband, Michael Teo, on the warpath to ruin her reputation and her new relationship with Charlie Wu. Kitty and her new step-daughter, celebrity fashionista Colette, go head-to-head in a clash for attention.

Talk of mansions in Manila, a kidnapping in one of Hong Kong’s elite private schools, and a marriage proposal in an Indian palace also puts us on the edge of our seats. We've already marked May 23 on our calendars.
