The Six Train to Wisconsin Back Cover Summary

Sometimes saving the person you love can cost you everything.

There is one person that ties Oliver Richter to this world: his wife Kai. For Kai, Oliver is the keeper of her secrets.

When her telepathy spirals out of control and inundates her mind with the thoughts and emotions of everyone within a half-mile radius, the life they built together in Manhattan is threatened.

To save her, Oliver brings her to the hometown he abandoned—Butternut, Wisconsin—where the secrets of his past remain buried. But the past has a way of refusing to stay dead. Can Kai save Oliver before his secrets claim their future?

An emotionally powerful debut, The Six Train to Wisconsin pushes the bounds of love as it explores devotion, forgiveness and acceptance.

“Readers will be hooked by Kai’s special powers and the ways in which they make her life difficult.”
–Publishers Weekly

The Six Train to Wisconsin is an engaging story that deftly explores the mysteries and secrets of the heart and mind. Kourtney Heintz has crafted a story that is hypnotic and uplifting – you won’t want to put it down.”
–Paige Shelton, New York Times and National bestselling author of the Farmer’s Market Mystery and Country Cooking School Mystery series

“The Six Train to Wisconsin is like a breathless thrillride on an out-of-control freight train rushing through the darkness, at a pace that never slows down, never lets up, and never compromises. There are enough twists and turns and near misses to make you hang onto your seat by your fingernails, and at the end, respite and a satisfying conclusion that makes the crazy ride worth it. The characters are so real as to be uncomfortable at times, the dialogue is realistic, and the writing compelling. Well done!”
–Jenna Bennett/Jennie Bentley, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of the Cutthroat Business and DIY Home Renovation series

“Heintz’s debut weaves psychological insight into a suspenseful, sci-fi–tinged thriller and produces a welcome variation on the classic marriage drama.”
–Kirkus Reviews

The Six Train to Wisconsin combines a brilliantly conceived plot with deep psychological insight and compelling writing to produce a wonderful reading experience.”
–Sandra Schwayder Sanchez, Book Reviewer,

“This story as a whole is going to stay with me for a while and I do not find many paranormals that I will say that about. The way that the fantasy aspect is wrapped into the real world and the very real love between the characters is seamless.”
-Reviewed by Kathryn Bennett for Readers’ Favorite
