Heard back from her a few hours later.
Nice note. "... I want you to know how seriously I take each and every query I receive. There was much to admire in your work, but, unfortunately <name of book> does not a fit for my list at this time. I appreciate the time and effort that querying takes, and I hope you keep going. I’m sure you’ll find the perfect place for your work soon!"

Looks like she is on a requesting spree! Wonder if that means we're in for a long wait.
