The Seven Steps to Closure by Donna Joy Usher
GENRE: Romance | PAGES: 410
My rating: ★★★
The Seven Steps to Closure started so slowly for me that I almost gave up on it; thankfully I didn’t. By the time Tara, the protagonist got on that plane to India, I’d completely warmed to her, and when Matt was introduced, things took a delightfully funny and romantic turn, and I couldn’t help but enjoy it. This was a lighthearted and very funny read, particularly handy whilst in ‘book limbo’.
Tara Babcock awakes the morning after her 30th birthday with a hangover that could kill an elephant – and the knowledge she is still no closer to achieving closure on her marriage breakup. Things go from bad to worse when she discovers that, not only is her ex-husband engaged to her cousin – Tash, the woman he left her for – but that Jake is also running for Lord Mayor of Sydney. Desperate to leave the destructive relationship behind and with nothing to lose, she decides- with encouragement from her three best friends – to follow the dubious advice from a magazine article, Closure in Seven Easy Steps. The Seven Steps to Closure follows Tara on her sometimes disastrous- always hilarious – path to achieve the seemingly impossible.
