“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.”

—Jenna Bennett/Jennie BentleyUSA Today & New York Times bestselling author of the Do-It-Yourself Home Renovation mysteries & the Cutthroat Business mysteries

—Midwest Book Review, Senior Reviewer D.Donovan


The Six Train to Wisconsin combines a brilliantly conceived plot with deep psychological insight and compelling writing to produce a wonderful reading experience.

Book Pleasures Reviewer Sandra Shwayder Sanchez


“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


“Flawed characters in a town crippled by isolation and insecurity, liars, cheaters and players, everyone has an agenda and Kourtney Heintz has rolled the dice and come up with a suspense filled winner that guards the end like Cerberus!”

“Overall, this was a really enjoyable read and mystery, paranormal and romance lovers can all find something they like with this one.”



“The author’s vivid imagery and constructed cast of characters transported me to Butternut, Wisconsin, and the mysteries lurking in the shadows there. The telepath and dream walking parts of the story were amazing, as was the plot itself.”
