Amazon Synopsis: 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 is an unique storyline about a love story that influenced me to read more romance books. I was able to read Bingo Love by Tee Franklin and dive into the love story of Hazel & Mari. The plot intrigued me and kept me on my toes while reading the love story of two women being reunited again during church bingo. I decided to chat about this graphic novel because of how much I enjoyed it but also because of the unique plot.
My favorite line:
“I have hidden my love for a woman for fifty years.”
I was recommended Bingo Love from an author that I reviewed on my blog ironically. Bingo Love was created by Tee Franklin and is a love story about two women named Hazel & Mari that had a love journey of finding eachother after fifty years of being apart. I was already intrigued by the storyline because I want to read more books featuring LGQBT characters and this book ended up making me want to read more romance books after finishing it. I was able to learn about the backstory of the two main characters Hazel and Marie, how they fell in love, what happened in between and how their love story impacted the both of them.
The writing was conversational and made me feel like I was watching a movie; not just reading a love story. The illustration added to my movie analogy because they were well designed and beautiful to look at while reading. The writing seemed to fit everyday conversations and something I could picture happening. I enjoyed the characters and their personalities while seeing how they fell in love.
The relationship of Hazel & Mari represented what people from the LGQBT community had to go through throughout history. Bingo Love was a love story but also a history lesson. There were a few aspects that I wanted to see more of when it came to the development of the story. But, overall, I enjoyed this book and plan on reading more of Tee Franklin's work because she captured me as a reader with Bingo Love.
