Daphne Huntington-Smythe — fun loving and spontaneous California golden girl in her mid-20’s, with sun-kissed blonde curls & blue eyes, always on the go with dinner dates, social events & Sunday afternoons at the Yacht Club. Somehow still finds time to do her job as accessories buyer and part owner of Poppy Cove with aplomb.
Margot Williams — recent resident, Margot made fast friends with Daphne & became the designer & dressmaker partner of Poppy Cove. Also in her mid-20’s, she’s the more contemplative of the two with sleek brown hair & a slim yet curvy figure with a passion for fine silks, linens & tropical wools. Her tastes run to jazz & classical music & enjoys her leisure time with Tom, her boyfriend of two years, who just happens to be Santa Lucia’s top Police Detective.
Loretta Simpson — Santa Lucia Times’ Society Editor. Quick as a bird, Loretta’s all over town, catching the scoop on all the Do’s our little berg has to offer. Originally from Vermont, Loretta moved from a stint in Los Angeles & quickly became Santa Lucia’s answer to Hedda Hopper.
Nancy Lewis — born & bred local banker’s wife & influential social climber know for her famous public rivalry with Constance Stearns-Montgomery, who was found strangled with her silk scarf. Nancy spends much of her time scheming to get what she feels she is due in life & making sure her three daughters keep in line.
Irene Swanson — young woman with a past as a Hollywood wildcat, Irene was moved out of the city by her parents to live with her grandmother, where she still finds a nightlife worth sneaking out for. A voluptuous & vivacious twenty-two year old raven haired beauty with a quick wit that charms as much as it barbs & head for figures, makes a savvy store manager & live model for Poppy Cove.
Hope you enjoyed getting to know some of our residents. More next week.
