EQ: 5/5
ER 5/6:

Thanks for writing about your novel, but I'm afraid I didn't connect with the story strongly enough to feel I'd be the advocate the book deserves. I'll step aside, then, with best wishes for your finding the right match elsewhere. Thanks again for the opportunity to consider this, and best wishes for its success.

EQ: 3/24
ER: 3/31 form, yet slightly different from the others pasted into the comments. Maybe she varies them a bit?

"Thanks for writing about your novel. There's much to admire here, but I'm afraid I didn't connect with the story strongly enough to feel I'd be the advocate the book deserves. I'll step aside, then, with best wishes for your finding the right match elsewhere. Thanks again for the opportunity to consider this, and best wishes for its success."

You tell me: Helpful, or Form? I think Form, since it looks familiar. Fast, too ...
