Los Morenos

After the success of Azucar Moreno, author Shelley Halima follows up with Los Morenos -- the eagerly anticipated story of cousins Nikki and Rosie Moreno.

Raised together like sisters, cousins Nikki and Rosie Moreno have remained steadfastly loyal to one another through much tragedy and heartache. However, Nikki leaves Rosie in their hometown of Detroit to pursue an acting career in Los Angeles. With success and the comfort of her soul mate Mario, Nikki has it all -- except for Rosie.

When Rosie calls with the news that she's been selected for modeling spread, Nikki is thrilled that her cousin, and best friend, is coming to Los Angeles as well. The only question is -- with newfound media attention and a fast-paced Hollywood lifestyle -- will Los Angeles be big enough for the both of them? Before it is all over, one cousin will find herself hurtling toward an addiction, while the other comes face to face with her own mortality.

With the tumultuous ups and downs that come when chasing a dream, Los Morenos is about the unbreakable bonds of true friendship. Featuring endearing characters and a glamorous, exciting setting, Shelly Halima delivers another fresh, heartwarming, and funny tale of two animated cousins and their intertwined lives.
