From Goodreads:
Bingo Love is a story of a same-sex romance that spans over 60 years. A chance meeting at church bingo in 1963 brings Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray together. Through their formative years, these two women develop feelings for each other and finally profess their love for one another.

Forced apart by their families and society, Hazel and Mari both married young men and had families. Decades later, now in their mid 60’s, Hazel and Mari are reunited again at a bingo hall. Realizing their love for each other is still alive, what these grandmothers do next takes absolute strength and courage.

I loved the art style in Bingo Love. The romance was amazing, and I felt for all of the characters. There were a few cheesy parts, but what good romance doesn't have a few of those? There was only one part of the book that I really did not like: one character's story was not told in full. It was only in the Kickstarter edition. I desperately wanted to know that character's.secret, so I was really disappointed... except Bingo Love: Jackpot Edition has that story and is out November 14! I can't wait to read it! CLOSURE. Whew.
