Welcome to the book review post for The Last McAdam by Holly Ford as part of the Virtual Blog Tour.
The Last McAdam by author Holly Ford was breathtaking reading. I loved the story from the first chapter. So many notable scenes that stirred many sentiments. Hilarity, awkwardness, heartfelt and tense moments that were entertaining from one page to the next. Tess from the start was a firecracker – likeable and endearing. Nate – cheeky and likeable also. Stan’s character was beautifully portrayed and often pulled at the heartstrings. Even the secondary characters of Mitch and Harry were equally as entertaining as the main characters of Tess and Nate. As the pages turned and the story unfolded, it just kept getting better and better. Simply stunning reading.

About The Last McAdam by Holly Ford
Can Nate McAdam win the heart of the woman who’s taken over his farm? The Last McAdam combines an unforgettable cast of characters with an irresistibly entertaining tale of romance, suspense and the unbreakable bonds of friendship.
Passed down through the same family for over a century, the remote sheep and cattle station of Broken Creek has recently been taken over by global agribusiness company Carnarvon Holdings. Now Carnarvon has sent its best troubleshooting manager, Tess Drummond, to turn the property’s failing fortunes around – fast.
When Tess arrives to take the reins of Broken Creek she’s faced with a couple of nasty surprises. For starters, her head stockman, Nate McAdam, happens to be the same gorgeous stranger she hooked up with – and ran out on – a few weeks before.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Nate was supposed to inherit Broken Creek until his stepfather ran it into the ground. Now the last McAdam on the station leads a team of men whose bonds have been forged through hell and high water and whose mission is to see off Carnarvon and Tess so he can take his rightful place.
A genius with farm work – and women – but a disaster in the office, Nate is everything Tess believes a farmer shouldn’t be. Determined not to give in to her growing attraction to him, Tess sets out to do her job, but she soon finds herself caught up in the battle of her career.
The Last McAdam by Holly Ford is published by Allen & Unwin, RRP $29.99, available now.
