Here's a bit of what reviewer Hilary Koepenick said:
Stone Cold Case is a cozy mystery that manages to avoid some of the trouble that genre tends to run into. The characters are surprisingly believable, and never fully fit the stereotypes that would have been easy to draw on in such a case. The small town politics and intrigue are fascinating, and the geological information (gems, rocks, minerals – geodes!) is both accurate and intriguing. More than once I found myself looking up gems she mentioned and being shocked by their beauty.
