A sequel to Patricia Rice's Almost Perfect, McCloud's Woman throws together TJ McCloud, a callous forensic anthropologist, and flashy movie producer Mara Simon, but inconsistent character development and an overstuffed plot prevent sparks from flaring between the two. Mara's film crew needs access to an ocean site, but TJ's dig site stands in the way. Hoping TJ will give her a break since he used to be friends with her deceased older brother, Mara appeals to him only to be rebuffed. The two eventually fall in lust with each other, but several obstacles stand in their way-including TJ's guilt over Mara's brother's death and his potential involvement in a war crime scandal. The protagonists frequently push each other away and come together again, but Rice gives readers little reason to care for her characters, let alone cheer for their happy ending.

Forensic anthropologist T. J. McCloud has spent a decade traveling from one exotic locale to the next, so when his brother asks him to come to South Carolina to examine some bones buried on his beachfront property, T. J. readily agrees. Completely engrossed in work, he barely notices the women there until someone unrecognizable arrives from his past. Mara Simon is a glamorous and confident Hollywood producer, a far cry from her years as Patsy Simonetti, the shy, geeky little sister of T. J.'s best childhood friend who once caught his heart. She's there to shoot a film on the very beach property T. J. is excavating, and when T. J. refuses to compromise his site, the two start a war that doesn't end until they're in each other's arms. Then T. J. begins to receive ominous warnings to quit digging into the past and to leave town. Unsure of whether he can trust Mara, T. J. must decide whether to follow his heart. The second in Rice's trilogy about the McCloud brothers is intriguing and passionate. Megan Kalan

This was good not my favorite but good. Thier are a few love scenes in it that I skipped over.
I like the McCloud brothers and thier friends.
T.J. is hiding out in his sister-in-laws beach house. He was digging for the rest of the bones and any other clues who these
two guys were. Some people wanted them to be pirates and that would be great publicity for the movie that was going to be filmed on the beach. Others think it would be slaves or even Germans from WWII.
T.J. had all these boxes of information that might be used in trial. His friend the Colonel Martin that he worked with and a family friend. The Col. has been acused of taking bribes and letting war crimes suspects off without bringing them to trial. T.J. might just have the evidence. He could also be up for trials or testimony if they thought he knew. He did not want to destroy a friends life till he knew one way or the other. He was hiding from media that might remember he was thier and friends with the Col.
Mara has changed a lot since high school when she dated Tim. T.J. did not remember her. She has been married and divorced twice. Had nose job,modeling lessons. She is now in North Carolina to produce a movie. If it makes a profit she will buyout her ex-husband share of the movie studio. But they can not get to the beach where they have permission to film because T.J. has blocked the roadway because of his dig.
Someone is threatening T.J. because he is holding up the movie with his federal funded dig. Though he is leaning towards a 60 year old murder. He is not going to have the evidence be destroyed by vehicals crossing the dig.
Mara and T.J. get together again and Mara also knows his two brothers that also are on the island. Even though they are in each others way professionaly.
Lots of drama,humor,some mystery and romance make it a good story. I bought it off amazon.
