Literary suspense

I'm pausing my query process and revising the query after 1) getting only negative responses and 2) getting feedback from writer friends who kindly suggested that I rewrite the whole thing (except for two sentences!).

Response time is usually 4-6 weeks for unsolicited queries, but on Dec 2nd, she posted this to Twitter:
"Hey all! Just letting you know that I'll be closed to queries starting Sunday, December 8 until January 2, 2020. I will be taking time off to spend time with family, so if you've already queried or have a submission with me, I ask that you allow extra time for a response."

She asked for the first three chapters, which I sent. Waited two and a half months. Gave her a nudge. She replied ten minutes later with the message that she just "didn't connect to the story." Mine is a non-fiction book. There is no "story." Which means she never really read any of the manuscript.
