This book has been nothing but pure delight. From the glamorous elites of Shanghai to the hole-in-the wall restaurants you frequent for a taste of home, Sophie Wan does a masterful job at weaving the lives of three different women into an exciting and heartfelt debut novel. It is a love letter to female friendships, dreams, and femininity.

— Gao Her


A reluctant bride and her two best friends plot to steal all the gift money from her glitzy high-society wedding in this dazzling, heartfelt, funny novel for fans of Crazy Rich Asians

"A glittering debut. Delightful." --Carley Fortune, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Every Summer After

Bride-to-be Lulu is about to marry Shanghai's most eligible bachelor. She just has one secret: she isn't in love with him and is only marrying him to fix her family's financial issues. But for Lulu and her two best friends, her upcoming nuptials may offer a different opportunity entirely...

It will be the social event of the season, lavish and over the top, but the three women's focus will be on one thing: the red envelopes filled with cash gifts, stored in an elaborate safe at the center of the ballroom. More than enough money to solve all their problems and transform their lives.

Friends who steal together, stay together.

With the help of a mysterious luxury goods counterfeiter and a snarky getaway driver, the friends forge a brilliant plan to lift all the red envelopes on the big day. But as their plot grows increasingly complicated and relationships are caught in the cross fire, they're forced to face that having it all might come at a steep price.

"Joyous, indulgent, immensely clever." --Grace D. Li, New York Times bestselling author of Portrait of a Thief
