Guess December isn't such a bad time to query after all.

Rejection 12/9/19 with helpful personalized comments as to why, and an offer to re-read if I revise. Appreciate fast turnaround.

It's been 13 days since I submitted to this agent. Although that doesn't seem like much time, considering her quick response if she's interested, I think this is a CNR.
