Shattered Silence by Margaret Daley

Book Description:
A serial killer is targeting illegal aliens in southern Texas. Texas Ranger Cody Jackson is paired with a local police officer, Liliana Rodriguez, to investigate the murders.
While the case brings Cody and Liliana ever closer, the tension between Americans and Mexican Americans heightens. Fighting their attraction, Cody and Liliana race to discover who is behind the murders and bring peace to the area. What they uncover isn’t what they expected. Will Cody and Liliana’s faith and love be strong enough to survive the storm of violence?

My Thoughts:
This was a pretty good book!  Texas Ranger Cody Jackson has moved away from Houston for two main reasons.  To get his son away from his stepfather's influence and to solve the attack on his mentor.  While in Durango, he is partnered with Liliana Rodriguez and they investigate a series of murders.  The whole time, tensions are rising, bodies are piling up and the two of them work hard to figure out exactly what is going on.
This book tackled some hard topics head on and I think the author did a good job with all of them.  Faith was woven well into the storyline.  Bullying was dealt with.  Racism handled quite well.  The characters were written well, as was the storyline.  I enjoyed watching Cody and Kyle's relationship heal and Cody and Liliana's relationship develop.
I rate this a 4/5.  Though it was the second in the series is stands alone quite well.
