Please note - This is a Chicklit Novel in the style of Marian Keyes and Sophie Kinsella.

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.
A credible and amazingly touching debut novel from Donna Joy Usher, this is a solid, light-hearted and honest read with plenty of laughs.

“The Seven Steps to Closure’s heroine, Tara, is an endearing character and her entertaining journey to closure is packed with laughs and plenty of heart.” Tonya Plank, Shirley You Jest! Book Awards judge and author of 'Swallow'.

  • Lost me half way through

    From DisappointedHero
    I didn't find it funny at all. Honestly I am surprised it won in a comedy category. Another reviewer said it started slow so I gave it a chance. It lost me at the start of step 5. I was on the fence but the intro to that part turned me right off. I finished the book but didn't get reinvested at all. It was all contrived. Of course the exact right person was in the exact right place. Of course every secret turns out to be something or someone amazing. This book had less complexity than an episode of Three's Company.
  • Closure

    From Wine please
    Very funny but still maintains a solid storyline. Great people, good times and a whole lot of life.
  • Hilariously fantastic - Loved it

    From Becca123657
    It was an epic ride of ups and downs. Surrounded by great friends all unique in their own way as they all face life's ups and downs we follow the main character Tara while she goes through the "The Seven Steps of Closure" often with hilarious results that could happen to anyone. It's about finding oneself, learning to laugh again and moving on. The book is filled with scenes that will make you laugh as new love blossoms as closure happens. A friend recommended this book and I have to thank her. I look forward to reading more books by this author.

  • Funny, heartwarming read

    From Tarynbobean
    I must say, the beginning was a bit slow to start / hard to get into/ get engaged in, but hang in there - there are so many funny and heartwarming scenes. I'm going back and re-reading now!
