Review: The 6 Train to Wisconsin by Kourtney Heintz

The Six Train to Wisconsin Back Cover:

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.

Author Bio:

Kourtney Heintz writes emotionally evocative speculative fiction that captures the deepest truths of being human. For her characters, love is a journey never a destination.

She resides in Connecticut with her warrior lapdog, Emerson, her supportive parents and three quirky golden retrievers. Years of working in financial services provided the perfect backdrop for her imagination to run amuck at night, imagining a world where out-of-control telepathy and buried secrets collide.

Her debut novel, The Six Train to Wisconsin, was a 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Semifinalist and will be available in e-book and paperback in May 2013.

 My Review:

Not your typical paranormal romance by any means!  Paranormal fiction in my opinion seems to be centered around a few similar storylines/paranormal abilities.  (And don't get me wrong I love them and will read them all day long.) This book was a great change from that!  I definitely recommend to the paranormal fiction lovers out there.  I give it 4 stars overall!

  1. I've been reading a lot about Kourtney in my attempt to think up interview questions for her. I love speculative fiction and her book, The Six Train to Wisconsin, certainly seems to fit the bill. I like that the romance seems to be atypical, and there's also the mystery/thriller aspect that definitely has me intrigued. I can't wait to read it!

  2. Hi Susan! Thanks for reading up on me. :) I really appreciate you taking the time to craft our interview questions. :) It's definitely a lovestory more in the vein of The Time Traveler's Wife. It was a very hard book to categorize. It doesn't adhere nicely to any genre constraints. ;)

  3. Congrats to Amanda L! Sending out the swag bag on Monday. The Twix is going in a separate Ziploc bag. Should arrive intact. *Fingers crossed*
