The book readings then commenced with Debola Williams and Arese Ugwu who read excerpts from the Prologue and 1st Chapter whilst guests delighted their tastebuds with deliciously scrumptious
Baileys-infused sweet treats.
The evening ended with a book signing whilst posing for pictures with the Author. The celebration continued as guests tasted and savoured signature Baileys and Ciroc cocktails.
