Every book in this series features the main character in the role of Sunshine Meadows. She is depicted as a fortune teller living in New York City and is often referred to as Sunny. She moves to the rural region of Divinity in upstate New York to set up her business of fortune telling. Sunny Meadows uses various tools of fortune telling for interpreting her visions and seeks to help the residents of rural Divinity.

While doing the same for Granny Gert, she sees a vision about Granny’s arch nemesis Fiona Atwater being involved in a violent argument. Later, when the squabbles of Fiona and Granny spread in every corner of the town, Sunny knows something shocking is about to happen. Shortly after, a local resident gets crushed by a Cadillac and as Granny Gert and Fiona are discovered at the scene, they become involved in the murder investigation. As a result, Sunny also gets involved and is required to indulge in solving another mystery in spite of being hesitant to take up any such thing again.
