Despite the name it's more of a ghost story

A woman is convicted of crime she did not commit. She is also accused of being a witch by a vindictive person that tries to get her reputation destroyed. Many years later, after her execution, she is still roaming the mountains and cannot rest in peace until her name has been cleared.

Maeve comes home after being gone for several years. She is a lawyer and because she did the right thing in a case, she got fired. She goes hiking on the mountains close to her grandmother's house and sees the ghost of Delphine. The Ghost even tries to talk to her. She decides to dig deep into Delphine's conviction and find out what really happened.

Maeve's old boyfriend, a sheriff's deputy, comes to get her after her grandmother gets hurt and had been taken to the hospital. One thing leads to another and it is hard to ignore their feelings for each other that never went away.

The story is interesting and it goes back between past and present. The past story is told by Delphine. It is pretty easy to distinguish who is telling the story and whether it's present or past. The narrator did a fairly good job bringing the story to life. I heard it in one sitting. It's a fairly short story but the story was complete and moved along well.
