“I always thought it strange to hear laughter at a wake. I wanted people to mourn, to cry, to feel the rage inside that I did and to scream and shout. I wanted the sun to stop shining, for the birds to stop singing.”
“I shook my head. I had no need for a good woman, it was the bad ones I had recently discovered – they were the ones I liked at that point in my life.”
“At my heart, I am a simple farmer’s son who loved so desperately and lost.”
Rocco is a melancholy and almost ethereal read, while interspersed with those steamy bits that Tracie Podger does so very well. I became an instant fan of hers with Fallen Angel Part 1. The Rocco novella fills in some missing pieces of the story for me, although it also further intrigues me about Evelyn. I have somehow missed out on some of the other novellas, but I always enjoy reading Ms. Podger’s work. Her plot and character development are intense and engrossing, and her writing style is highly descriptive, and involving, and tends to stay with me long after I have finished the books. While reading Rocco, I was so entrenched I could almost smell the coffee and taste the wine, and I swear I heard the Godfather music in my head throughout the story. I have become so invested in his story that I hoping Ms. Podger reconnects Rocco and Evelyn down the road to ease his misery... just saying.
