This book was so cute, from the start I was swept up in their glamour and I fell instantly in love with Lucie and George’s chemistry. I really wanted to see Lucie embrace both sides of her heritage in this book and follow her heart over trying to suppress it and how she feels. Overall, this book seemed to fly by and it took me no time at all to read. There was romance, hilarity, drama, and big-money moves. It was another enjoyable and hearty read from Kevin Kwan.

Full disclosure: I have not read "A Room With a View," but I have read the Crazy Rich Asians Trilogy and I believe this new standalone from Kevin Kwan is as good or better than CRA. The dynamics of race and privilege are approached from sites in the Western Hemisphere giving new dimensions to explore. Lucie and George are both likable characters. The scene in which George recites the title of the book was hands down my favorite emotional moment. There were many other tongue in cheek moments along the way as well as jaw-dropping descriptions of events and locations (most in Capri). It felt like I went on vacation and watched a rom-com all in one.
