No Substitute is the second book by Susan Diane Johnson that I have read. Loved them both. This book is well written with well developed characters including Rufus the duck. I really enjoyed reading this wonderful and lighthearted romance story that includes trust, forgiveness, betrayal, faith and love.
Amy Walsh and Quentin MacMillian were teenagers in love and planned to tun away and get married. She waited and waited for him to pick her up but he never came. Heart broken she left town the next day with her parents. After 17 years she returns to Goose Bay to be a substitute teacher and discovers Quentin's daughter is in her class. One reason to come back was to end her feelings for Quentin and move on with her life. However his daughter has plans to get her widowed father and Amy back together. They find that they do still care of each other.
Quentin whose wife passed away is trying to be the best father he can to his daughter Shayna. He wants to tell Amy why he left her waiting all those years ago and explain why he married so soon after they broke up.
There is a lot going on in this story that I haven't touched on as I do not want to reveal to much.
I recommend this book.

A nice quick read. It deals with how one needs to learn to love
themselves and accept whom they are in order to make the
changes to have succeed in life and live a happy existence.
The story totters between the past and present love life of Amy Welsh and Quentin Macmillian. Both are well developed
characters with a chemistry that is undeniable.
They were high school sweethearts. They were to meet to run
away together but Quentin left Amy sit never showing up.
Amyâ€™s family moved from Goose Point the next day. Soon after Quentin married his best friend, Karen.
Now 17 yrs later, Amy moves back as a substitute teacher for an English and Journalism teacher on maternity leave. What a Surprise to find Shayna Macmillian daughter of Quentin in her class!!! The last thing Amy would have expected.
Why did Quentin leave her stranded? Why did he marry Karen so soon after she left? Why did Karen die? What is going on with his daughter and a boy Quentin had to fire? Why is Quentin company losing bids? What going to happen to Rufus the duck who provides humor to the story? Was Karen a substitute for Amy in Quentinâ€™s heart?
Besides being a light readâ€¦the theme of forgiveness and faith
abounds throughout the story.

It quickly becomes obvious Quentin Macmillan is still in possession of her heart, and he has feelings for Amy as well. However, he deeply hurt Amy 17 years ago and Amy cannot quite overcome that monumental issue. Quentin also has a teenage daughter in Amy's class. This leads to all kinds of complications in Amy and Quentin's relationships. Can Amy trust Quentin with her heart this time around? What secrets are threatening to destroy Amy and Quentin's relationship? What secrets are others around them, such as his daughter and employees hiding? Will Amy and Quentin let God's forgiveness overflow into others' lives, or will others' actions forever victimize them?
This was a fun read,but very frustrating to have Amy vacillate so much in her feelings. However, she IS of the female persuasion!!

No Substitute is a sweet story about past hurts and taking hold of the chance to forgive and be forgiven. I found this book to be very enjoyable and easy to read. All of the characters were well-written and interesting, and the main characters had some big issues in their past to work through before any future together could be possible.
Amy Welsh carries around a lot of emotional baggage and old hurts from when she lost her first love, Quentin, to another girl. Seventeen years later, she still doesnâ€™t understand what went wrong and has never been able to move on to loving anyone else. Quentin feels horrible about how things ended years ago, but also has hope that there could be a chance to find love with Amy again.
I would definitely recommend this book to fans of Christian contemporary fiction. The romance is sweet, the characters are likeable, and it is a satisfying read.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, through The Book Club Network, in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
