I’m thrilled to join the blog tour for @HeidiStephens’ new book, The Only Way Is Up.


Daisy has had a successful twenty five year tv career. Then she suffers a mortifying and very public wardrobe malfunction.
Hoping to let things die down, Daisy heads off to a small Cotswold village, where she plans to do some writing while she lies low.
Life takes some unexpected turns for Daisy and she still has many hurdles to clear. However her retreat from the limelight may be just what Daisy needs, and she may even find her happy ever after while she’s at it.

I adored this book. Daisy is a likeable main character, who I was rooting for from the start.
Tom is a man with a heartbreaking past and he deserved nothing less than a happily ever after.
The other characters in the story are a fabulous mix of colourful souls.

TheOnlyWayIsUp skips along at a good pace and kept me interested and turning those pages.

There is a very sweet love story at the heart of this book, but it is not the main focus of the story. There is so much more going on in this fun read.

I loved how inclusive this book is, without making a song and dance about it. Just the way things should be.

HeidiStephens writes beautifully. The words flow effortlessly between the pages.

If you’d like to read a light hearted, feel good story that will leave you with a smile on your face and warmth in your heart, you won’t go far wrong with this charming and delightful tale.


Twenty-five years in showbiz is a good run, right? Because after tonight, when her small (read: huge) wardrobe malfunction was broadcast to the nation’s living rooms, Daisy’s time in the spotlight might be over.

It’s all about damage control now, and Daisy needs an escape route. Fast. Especially when her sporting hero boyfriend publicly announces their engagement – the one she hasn’t actually agreed to tell the world about.

All she needs is space from prying eyes and time for the press to get bored and move on. But the only place she can run to at such short notice is the Cotswolds cottage she used to own with her ex-husband. Not ideal, but at least it’s in the middle of nowhere and close to her teenage daughter.

Seems like a perfect plan, apart from the person selling stories to the tabloids about her and Tom, the local headmaster.

But that’s just a rumour, right?

The perfect uplifting and feel-good romantic comedy that will have you snorting with laughter. If you love Sophie Ranald, Catherine Walsh, and Mhairi Macfarlane, you won’t want to miss this!

The Only Way Is Up: An absolutely hilarious and feel-good romantic comedy

Hi! Thanks for coming, pull up a chair. 

I’m a British marketing consultant-turned-romcom novelist – Two Metres From You is my debut novel, and my second, Never Gonna Happen, is out in all formats in May 2022 and available to pre-order now. 

Since 2008 I’ve also written lots of of liveblogs for The Guardian, about everything from The Apprentice to Big Brother. Now I focus on two of my favourite things – the Eurovision Song Contest and Strictly Come Dancing. 

I live in the lovely market town of Chippenham in Wiltshire with my boyfriend Pip and my dog Mabel. I have two grown-up children and can bake a very decent Victoria sponge. You’ll find my website at, or I’m on Twitter/Insta @heidistephens.
