Rise & Shine, Benedict Stone

Phaedra Patrick

In the quiet English village of Noon Sun, Benedict Stone has settled into a predictable routine. Business at his jewelry shop has dried up; his marriage is on the rocks. His life is in need of a jump start...and then a surprise arrives at his door. Gemma is Benedict's teenage niece--the daughter of his estranged brother, Charlie. The two Stone brothers haven't spoken in almost two decades, since Charlie left for America. Reckless and stubborn, Gemma invites herself into Benedict's world and turns his orderly life upside down. But she might be just what he needs to get his life back on track...A colorful, engaging tale from the author of The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper (2016).
