I bought this after seeing the film. Whilst not criticising the film - which I enjoyed, the book version is very different. Once you get used to Winifred Watson's idiosyncratic writing style, the story itself is hugely enjoyable. Certainly the character of Delissia LaFosse is more likeable in the book than she is in the film, and Miss Pettigrew has more backbone than her film version. A nice snapshot of life in 1930s London.

This is a really fun book, full of surprise and moving along quickly. In a way it is fluffy, but at no time does it forget the impoverished reality of Miss Pettigrew's small life. I'm glad to have read this.

This book was really good. A Refreshing read that was different and fun. The notes relating to the author were also very interesting, would definitely recommend this book.

I loved this book, it draws you into a glamorous world intrigue and narrowly avoided disaster, and it has a happy ending!

What a fantastic, truly charming story. It is an excellent mood lifter and the sort of feel good book that makes you want to throw caution to the wind and have a wild night out on the town. Due to an error at her job agency, Miss Pettigrew, a middle-aged spinster looking for work as a governess finds herself early one morning at Miss LaFosse's house - a young, gorgeous socialite. Her life is changed irrevocably when Miss P steps across the threshold and becomes caught in the dramatic, eventful maelstrom that is Miss LaFosse's life. Amazingly relevant by 21st century standards (one of Miss LaFosse's many lovers uses that most notorious of class A drugs), Winifred Watson does not fail to surprise or delight.
