Violet Waverly and her grandmother Daisy own a bookstore in Cascade Springs, New York. A bookstore that has a special way of helping its shopper pick the precise book they need to read, whether they know it or not. To create more foot traffic in the store, Daisy asks Violet and the local book club to host a special reading event. During the event, one of the members is mysteriously killed. Concerned with who the murderer is, they are also worried the store will no longer have the ability to help people.
