Australian female authors make up the rest of the highest new entries chart with Caroline Overington (The One Who Got Away, HarperCollins), Karly Lane (Second Chance Town, Arena) and Tricia Stringer (Dust on the Horizon, Mira) all debuting in the top 60 with their latest titles. This week’s fastest mover is the new paperback edition of The Girl on the Train (Paula Hawkins, Black Swan), while the impact of Mother’s Day likely led to picture book Why I Love My Grandma (illus by Daniel Howarth, HarperCollins) and a resurgent The Dressmaker film tie-in (Rosalie Ham, Duffy and Snellgrove) claiming fourth and fifth spots on the fastest movers chart—Books+Publishing (source: Nielsen BookScan, week ending 30 April 2016).
