When her witness protection cover is blown, Amy Conroy flees across the country. With no money and only her dog for company, she steals rides in the trunks of unsuspecting strangers' cars until a tragic accident lands her in a Key West hospital, where she is mistaken for the dead driver.
Undergoing reconstructive surgery, Amy becomes almost the mirror image of beautiful Shelly Ralston. Even Matt Jensen, the investigative journalist Shelly was obsessively in love with, believes Amy's the deceased woman. As Amy lives a lie, she begins to fall for Matt herself and soon discovers how deep passions can run. But her idyllic days in Key West are numbered.

Great Books Don't Promote Violence
While portions of Half Moon Bay were entertaining, the basic premise seemed too far fetched to be entertaining. Amy, a brilliant young woman with a scarred face just happened to be in an accident where that part of her face was damaged, while she was hiding from her former boss, a violent criminal.
Although Amy's story was heart-breaking and griping, it didn't make sense that she refused to trust anyone in the federal government, just because the safe house where she was living was compromised. Hitchhiking is never a good idea.
I wanted to Amy to learn how to take care of herself - get a gun, take self-defense classes, do something - rather than hope that a man would be there to protect her. The author stressed Amy's high IQ, so I guess that I expected more.
The narration was so strange! Odd intonations by the narrator and the attempt at performing different voices was just terrible.
I would recommend more and better research into the medical references and listening technology. It was very elementary and borderline ridiculous.
Spend some time with different voices and maybe make them sound believable rather than distracting?
Disappointed that it started strong and fizzled into the ridiculous.
