This is the first book I have read by L. L. Dahl-Jensen and I hope it won't be the last. I read this book over 2 night and when I finally went to sleep - it was the first thing I thought of the next morning. "Rita, Rita" is full of wonderful characters, especially Josie. Throw in “The Mob” and we have a great read. The author has created characters that are totally believable and completely relate-able to the reader. I loved the intrigue laced throughout the story as I couldn't wait to see how the story ended. This is an author who is definitely going places. I would recommend this to anyone from mid-teen to adult who is looking for a can't-put-it-down romantic drama.
