"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
"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 like a breathless thrill ride 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."
-Jenna Bennett/Jennie Bentley, USA Today & New York Times bestselling author of the Do-It-Yourself Home Renovation mysteries & the Cutthroat Business mysteries
"A richly layered novel, THE SIX TRAIN TO WISCONSIN gently pushes at the reader's expectations, then exceeds them, turning what could almost become kitschy in more inexperienced hands to something with an almost literary bent (if the literary genre ever decided to dabble in the paranormal)." -Readers' Favorite Reviewer Kayti Nika Raet

The author drew me in to the plot from the very first few chapters. We learn about Oliver and Kai, and see that life in the Big City is just not working for them. As the book progresses and the setting changes to the quaint town of Butternut, the backgrounds of the two main characters are further revealed, and a host of new ones are introduced. There's even a turkey!
I found myself swept into all the dreamwalking meetings of Kai and her family members. The author has a knack for seamlessly weaving fantasy into a real-life setting. The way the characters' special powers are described makes it easy to understand the limits of the abilities each possesses. The descriptive language is vivid and many of the chapters have an almost gauzy dreamlike quality to them, as much of the dialogue is thought rather than spoken.
The pacing of the storyline rolls right along, with quite a thrilling turn towards the end of the book.
I purchased the paperback, which I recommend due to the beautiful photography placed at the start of certain chapters. The pictures give an added perspective into the world the characters inhabit.
I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for something exciting, a bit magical, and appreciates writing with a strong sense of the way people think, react, and love. The author is truly skilled at taking the reader into the world she has created.
Disclaimer: "I was given a review copy. All opinions expressed at my own." Please note, however, that I SELECT the books I want to read, much as you do, with an expectation of enjoyment. Should the book fail to live up to my expectations I'll so warn you! This one did not fail.
I didn't love any of the characters of the book - just liked them.
Heintz resists clear resolution at the end, which may be frustrating to some while delighful to others.
An OK read for me.

I really admired Heintz's skill in writing it, it's definitely not an easy story to write, it could have been really confusing, but it wasn't. It's clever and very well thought through. Everything hangs together and makes sense within the context of something extraordinary. The supernatural telepathy aspect is grounded in solid, real everyday relationships and settings, and that's why it works.
Often when you read a book, you think of other stories you've read, or seen, that it reminds you of, but that didn't happen for me here, I felt I was reading something very different and original. Really looking forward to the sequel now!
