Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review.

I would have liked this a bit better if high school caliber jealousies and emotions hadn't run rampant with Oliver and Kai. Just too immature to ring true for a married couple in their late 20's, early 30's. The similes and adjectives were many. Too many.

The premise of a telepath whose powers are completely out of control lured me in, and I really enjoyed the dream walker sequences. Looking at the plethora of four and five star reviews post

Oliver would do anything for Kia, including re-entering the place he ran from when it became his personal Hell. She is his world, his heart and soul and she is in danger of losing her mind or worse. Kia is a telepath and the weight of the crush of thoughts from thousands of minds in Manhattan are driving her mad, dr

I was contacted by the author and asked to request a copy of this book off Netgalley

So I was actually contacted by the author and asked to request this off NetGalley in anticipation orthe sequels release. This is a love story at its core. I found this to be a little slow in the beginning but once the pace picked up and there was an air of mystery surrounding the main characters, I was hooked. The characters are flawed and I thought the author did a great job of giving both Oliver and Kai some mu

Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

This is a hard book to review. There were parts of if I really loved and parts I really did not. The telepath and dreamwalking parts of the story were amazing, as was the plot itself.
This is a book about how we let the past haunt us long past the point we should. The main characters Kia and Oliver are messy, complicated and hard to like it really worked. That being said I found Kia to be the most an

One of the best mystery thriller novels I have ever read.

The book contains everything to make it delicious ranging from super-powered yet mentally tortured wife, her loving husband with a shameful secret, flirtatious ex-girlfriend, dead best friend, vindictive ex-husband of the ex-girlfriend, dream-walker brother-in-law detested by the husband. And one super awesome plot.

The Six Train to Wisconsin shows how true it is that “love is a journey, never a destination.” With shifting first person narratives, we’re brought into the minds of Oliver and Kai as they try to understand each other and themselves.

When the story opens, Oliver and Kai are married and living in New York City. As a telepath, the painful thoughts of everyone within a certain radius threaten Kai’s sanity.

Kai is all that matters to Oliver. He brings her to his boyhood home in Wisconsin and there he’

Going into this book I was under the impression that it was a fantasy. After reading over 50% of this book I would say it's a contemporary with bits and pieces of a supernatural aspect thrown in every once in awhile.

There are several of reasons I decided to DNF this one.

1. It felt depressing to me. Kai and Oliver love each other very much but their relationship is pretty tough. Almost every chapter they would have some sort of argument or disagreement. Rather than rooting for them to overcome

Kourtney Heintz is an amazing author, and this book was exciting and suspenseful! I could not put this book down, and I loved all the plot twists. It felt really real to me, since I live in Butternut.

The Six Train to Wisconsin is a contemporary fantasy that is mostly true to life except some of the characters have special abilities such as hearing thoughts or being able to enter other people's dreams. The main characters, Oliver and Kai, are a married couple living in New York. The concentrated population is having a detrimental effect on Kai who hears everyone's thoughts and experiences their deaths if they are in close enough proximity. To make the situation worse, Kai works as a social wo ...more
