Closer to the Heart by Mercedes Lackey
Valdemar: The Herald Spy series #2
Mags and Amily don't want to wait any longer to get married, but the king wants to use their wedding as a state event so foreign ambassadors will visit. Then the Hardorn ambassador unexpectedly visits with the news that Hardorn rebels are fighting against the child king and seem to be supplied with weapons from Valdemar. The regency council is about to declare war on Valdemar. So it is up to Mags and Amily to figure out what is going on -- Amily working with Mags child spy network in the city and Mags going back to mining country to see if he can discover the person responsible.
This was a great second book in the series. I really enjoyed the story. The reader discovered the villain as the characters in the book did. The only complaint I have is that I probably have to wait another year for the next book.
