A dangerous scheme could bury their long-held dreams forever. . . .

From the time she was little, Martha Jankowski has been digging in the dirt, much to the dismay of her mother. Now she dreams of being a paleontologist and is determined to make her parents proud by uncovering the next big discovery. When Martha finds what she hopes to be a fully intact dinosaur skeleton--one that could win her an acclaimed exhibit--she learns another team is competing against her and could steal her chance at being recognized for this momentous discovery.

Paleontology student Jacob Duncan has fulfilled his dream of digging for dinosaur bones at last. In a race against time, he and his team are bent on unearthing a complete skeleton to claim a museum exhibit with their names on it. But when Jacob meets their charming competitor Martha and uncovers foul play within his team, love and danger grow hand in hand until a menacing ruse threatens to destroy it all.


"Kimberley Woodhouse has crafted a treasure amid the Bone Wars of nineteenth-century Colorado. Set in Stone has adventure and romance, science and suspense in spades. A fresh setting and fascinating premise make this series sing!"

Laura Frantz, Christy Award-winning author of The Lacemaker

"A powerful blend of faith and science in a riveting novel! Woodhouse tackles a topic few other fiction writers have explored in her novel Set in Stone and peels back the layers with her superb research and masterful storytelling. I adored going on digs with a passionate, intelligent heroine and watching a partnership form with an unlikely hero. I found myself both savoring the story and eager to flip through the pages to find out what would happen--a thrilling ride!"
