    ‎In the follow-up to her first book, Avalanche of Spirits: The Ghosts of Wellington, Paranormal Underground Radio's Karen Frazier picks up where Avalanche left off. Here, she shares her ongoing story at Wellington, as well as providing an inside look into a lifetime of afterlife research. . Dancing With Ghosts has been my favorite summer read. It smoothly encompasses all I enjoy in a book love and loss, friendship and humor. It is honest, deep, refreshing, and sexy. I strongly recommend this book and look forward to what Russo has to offer in the future!/5(21).
