While herbs are used for the soup, I like it that the herbal taste is not too strong and the soup taste just nice. Will come again! Kent Thong Turtle Soup does not accept pickup at this time. Check back soon! Havelock Turtle Soup does not accept pickup at this time. The soup portion was generous with ginseng and lots of tough pieces of meat and gelatinous cuts. Slightly bitter after taste but it really heats you up in our Singapore weather.
Hearty portions. Very Lucky Turtle Soup does not accept pickup at this time. One of the best turtle soup that I have had in Singapore.
The ingredients are fresh. The turtle has minimal herbal smell, probably people who don't like strong herbal smells may like it.
The meat has lots of bones, and quite hard to chew. Kent Thong Turtle Shop does not accept pickup at this time. Ser Seng Herbs turtle Restaurant does not accept pickup at this time. Nevada United States. Other Editions 1.

I was interested in this series because it reminded me of the Nevada Barr books about a national park ranger. In this case, Rachel Porter is a fish and wildlife agent and in Tortoise Soup she is in the Nevada desert assigned to take care of the endangered wildlife there, particularly the desert tortoise.
However, Jessica Speart isn't quite the storyteller that Barr is, and there is a little too much flag-waving about the environment for my tastes. Lots of fun wacky characters, a murder to start out I was interested in this series because it reminded me of the Nevada Barr books about a national park ranger. Lots of fun wacky characters, a murder to start out the plot, corrupt government officials, and trigger happy ranchers who hate the fish and wildlife federal restrictions.
May 14, Galen Johnson rated it liked it Shelves: mysteries-thrillers. Fish and Wildlife Agent Rachel Porter is sent to the Nevada desert, where work seems unexciting and politics seem to drive all decisions. She is called to investigate the disappearance of endangered tortoise hatchlings from a federal facility, and finds herself involved in investigating the murder of an old land owner, the bombing of her house and office, and the mysterious operations of a mine that seems anything but ecologically sound.
Interesting characters and setting, but so U. Interesting characters and setting, but somewhat unoriginal.

Entertaining but not outstanding. Oct 17, Jeannine rated it liked it. Recently transferred from New Orleans to Las Vegas, she finds herself in a desert where government employees are disliked and distrusted by just about everyone, especially ranchers, developers and miners.
Add to the mix the theft of endangered tortoises from a government hatching facility, the murder of a desert recluse, a group of wacky ex-government environmentalists and someone dete Rachel Porter, US Fish and Wildlife Agent, is a cross between Stephanie Plum, Hetta Coffey and Anna Pigeon. Add to the mix the theft of endangered tortoises from a government hatching facility, the murder of a desert recluse, a group of wacky ex-government environmentalists and someone determined to keep Rachel from further investigations and you have a fun read.
Jun 01, Dixie rated it it was amazing. Love this series Jul 26, Jobiska Cindy rated it did not like it Shelves: mystery. Okay, I didn't finish it, but I read enough to feel like I deserve to put this on here and rate it. When I got to about the sixth ugly, miserable person who hates the protagonist and wants to do anything to stop her investigation, I got totally fed up. Why does everyone she encounter except for the one smarmy handsome guy whom she thinks is sexy and who therefore will probably turn out to be the bad guy have to be repulsive?
Is she the only halfway decent looking person in Nevada? May 16, Ann rated it liked it. Also, a breeding facility for desert torts is missing babies. She finds many quirky people.
Everyone is indifferent or anti-environmental. Little about the desert or tortoises.
Works hard to be interesting and fast paced. Not a bad read.
Jun 14, Janice rated it liked it Shelves: mysteries. This is the second in the Rachel Porter series, and while I found the first book almost as good as Nevada Barr's Anna Pigeon series, that was not the case with this one. The story was still entertaining and held my interest, but the quality of writing just does not compare with Barr's. However, I still enjoy the environmental issues addressed, and will probably read more of the series.
Jan 11, Lynne rated it liked it. This book was entertaining. It revolves around missing tortoise's. Rachel is a U. Fish and Wildlife Agent. It seems to be pushing the conservation issue. It was a fun mystery. Not sure I would read another in this series.
