"Thank you for your hospitality, apart from the murder... it was fun."

Let me tell you, I loved this book even if it made me realize that I know nothing about Croatian geography. Murder mystery in a locked room is one of my favorite subgenres and this book did it in such a cool and innovative way. I liked our main characters a lot and chemistry between them there so the relationship was very believable and felt natural (even though I felt a bit iffy about whole concept with dopplegangers). My abs

Rating: 5/5

Oh my GOD. This book was AMAZING!! It took me a while to actually start because of some personal life challenges, but this book was on my mind almost constantly. I'm not very familiar with Croatia, so I have to imagine that Croatian readers would be even more blown away by this book- although I'm impressed that's even possible!

It was such a joy to be a part of this production. To borrow from The Boys: Girls get it done!
Johnny's Girls is a lesbian dieselpunk romance with locked room mystery, skyscrapers, parallel universes in which world wars never happened, gold and riches, and the town Rijeka like you've never seen it. Hop into this world hopping adventure with Lina and Karol.

Also, this book is a joke how lesbian couples look alike taken a bit too seriously.

"Wait till you see the tower." She winked.
"What tower?"
"The Capuchin bell tower of Rijeka."

On the night of 8th of May 1945, Lina will pass through the paraversum portal and leave the post-war Rijeka for another version of her hometown, in which the World Wars never happened. Rich, cosmopolitan city-state, with its huge skyscrapers and floating vehicles, will capture her heart but her greatest surprise and challenge is bound to be her own double - Karol.

A great lesbian dieselpunk murder-mystery r
