Book Review: The Seven Steps to Closure
This was one of the many free books that I downloaded to my sister-in-law's kindle. Sadly, many of them sit there, unread, for a long time. But something drew me to this book, and I am happy that I decided to read it.
Tara turns 30 and learns that her husband is leaving her all at once. A year later, the news is filled with images of her ex running for political office, and getting engaged...to her cousin. She is in a constant fog, unable to move on.
Thankfully, Tara has a close-knit group of girl friends who are there to help her through her compulsion to purchase baked goods and be forever miserable. An article in a magazine about achieving the seven steps to closure from a relationship turns into something that her friends insist that Tara try.
I really enjoyed this book. I almost felt like I was reading Marian Keyes. But she's Irish and Donna is Australian, so the book settings are different. I feel like the main book theme is similar, though. Females finding their place in the world and the man of their dreams, all at the same time.
If you like a good chick lit, give this book a read. It's not free anymore, but you can purchase an ebook on Amazon currently for $3.99. If you need a nook book, though, you're out of luck. B&N only has the paperback edition of the book for sale.
