When Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray met at church bingo in 1963, it was love at first sight. Forced apart by their families and society, Hazel and Mari both married young men and had families. Decades later, now in their mid-’60s, Hazel and Mari reunite again at a church bingo hall. Realizing their love for each other is still alive, what these grandmothers do next takes absolute strength and courage.

Bingo love had been a book that I had been wanting to read for ages. I’m glad I waited for the jackpot edition though. The main story wasn’t enough for me, I NEEDED that extra content and didn’t want the book to end. I love LGBT books that are set years back, as I feel it adds more to a depth to romance book because of how the LGBT scene was back then. Hazel and Mari have such a connection and you can feel their love coming through the pages. From what I understand this is only volume one, so I hope to be able to read more about Hazel and Mari shortly.
