Praise

“If you loved Crazy Rich Asians, Kevin Kwan’s latest won’t disappoint….Alliances are made and unmade. Fortunes are won and lost. Rich people, trying to get richer, outwit themselves. Poor girls, armed with only their stubborn integrity, stake a claim on happiness. And the laugh lines arrive punctually….Kwan has a gimlet eye.”
—Louis Bayard, The Washington Post

“[Lies and Weddings] bounces from England to Hawaii to Morocco, with enough designer labels, priceless artwork and luxurious accommodations to make Beverly Hills seem folksy. But there’s an undertow beneath the froth.”
—Elisabeth Egan, The New York Times

“An irresistible tale of eye-popping glamour and shocking deception…This romantic romp circles the globe, hitting luxury locations and high comic notes in classic Kwan style.”
People

“A hilarious, richly detailed family affair that takes place around the world, from Hawaii to Venice to Los Angeles to the English countryside.” 
—Megan McCluskey and Olivia B. Waxman, TIME

“Delish and deceptive.” 
—WBUR

“The author of Crazy Rich Asians returns with another beach-ready confection starring pampered people in designer clothing behaving badly — this time at a decadent Hawaiian wedding where secrets erupt with the force and heat of lava.”
New York Times

“This novel is vintage Kwan and this time we take a hilarious dive into the Anglo-Asian billionaire scene which is populated with fierce Chinese moms, power-mad aunties, penniless English Lords, fabulous weddings, stately homes and too many secrets to mention. Imagine Crazy Rich Asians mated with Saltburn and you’ve got Lies and Weddings—a heavenly summertime read!”
—Plum Sykes, New York Times best-selling author of Bergdorf Blondes

“Known for his style, humor, and love of decadence, Kevin Kwan’s latest novel follows Rufus Gresham, the future Earl of Greshambury, and the owner of a whole lot of debt. It doesn’t take long before his scheming mother comes up with a plan—win the heart of a women with money at his sister’s luxe wedding, duh! . . . But when a volcanic eruption exposes his family’s true intentions, can the family rise again from the ashes or will a secret tragedy hidden for over 20 years reveal a shocking twist?”
—Chaise Sanders, Cosmopolitan

“[A] sly, hilarious comedy of manners about the high class, the low class, and the rich with no class….Kwan dishes out another juicy, satire-tinged romp about the lives of the opulent class with aplomb. The characters behave to the standard his fans have come to expect [and] the third-person omniscient narrative voice follows each character’s movements with the chattiness of a gossip columnist….Readers hungry for an escapist tale with a soupçon of social criticism and a dash of true love overcoming obstacles should find Lies and Weddings a delicious diversion.”
Shelf Awareness

“Kevin Kwan…is back with another page-turner of a romance.” 
Book Riot

The author of international sensation Crazy Rich Asians has returned with a new story you won’t be able to put down….A sprawling, globe-trotting adventure, filled with deceit, murder, love and humor.”
SheReads

“In [Lies and Weddings], Kwan continues to wrap fairy-tale love stories in glitz, glamour, couture, fine art, and delicious wit….Still more brilliant escapism among Kwan’s 1 percenters. Too much is never enough.”
Kirkus (starred)

“Kwan returns with another irresistible comedy of manners….[Lies and Weddings] allow[s] Kwan to indulge in his flair for vivid party scenes [and he] delivers on his reputation for breezy prose, encyclopedic references to art and haute couture, and quick-witted dialogue laced with Cantonese. The author’s fans will devour this.”
Publishers Weekly

“Rollicking…Delightful…Like every Kwan novel, Lies and Weddings is chock-full of scheming characters and breathtakingly lavish scenes….Kwan remains a cheekily hilarious writer….I drank this book up like the chilled bottles of Sancerre these characters are constantly drinking. Pure pleasure.”
—BookPage

“Kwan mines the trials and tribulations of the uberwealthy to great effect in this winning, modern-day comedy of manners…Kwan weaves together the drama of a nineteenth-century novel with timeless themes about identity, love, racism, and family loyalty, all while dropping snarky asides via footnote and details of the decadent lifestyles of the rich and famous. A fizzy, delightful confection perfect for devouring by the pool.”
Booklist

“Kwan is back and better than ever….From the beaches of Hawaii to Marrakech, and Los Angeles to England’s oldest family estates, Kwan’s latest is a juicy and hilarious story of love, money, murder and sex.”
PureWow

“Kwan took us to Singapore in Crazy Rich Asians, and he’s whisking us away to Hawaii, Marrakech and the English countryside in Lies and Weddings….A hilarious tale of love, lies, sex and money.”
