‘Cry Blue murder’ by Kim Kane & Marion Roberts seems to be the favorite in the Gold Inky category (Be prepared for a heart stopping twist in this novel set in Melbourne)
‘See you at Harry’s’ by Jo Knowles is the favorite in the Silver category (make sure you have your tissues ready if you read this one)
I would encourage you all to read these books they are truly enjoyable reads.
