Murder at the Tremont House: A Blue Plate Cafe Mystery (Blue Plate Cafe Mysteries Book 2) - Judy Alter

I read the first book in this series last year and really enjoyed it.  This book, not so much.  The plot took so long to get started that I lost interest by the time it did. Not that it mattered, the plot was so far-fetched and meandering that even if it had taken off sooner, it would've just been a DNF.  The love triangle is ridiculous; pick one or shut up.  Neither guy is interesting enough to root for.

Also, one of my pet peeves is when someone owns a business and is able to take off out of town for several days with no notice.  Hello, real world?  Wrong number.

Frankly, this book was a waste of time and I don't think I'll continue with it.  What a shame, the first book was very good.
