First Chapter, First Paragraph


Today is Tuesday--- which means I'll be joining up with Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea and her First Chapter, First Paragraph
Tuesday Intros, 
Where,  bloggers post the first paragraph of a book they are thinking of reading --- and get everyone's opinion to see if it grabbed them from the beginning or not.

My Paragraph:
Passengers in the row behind muttered the Lord's Prayer.  Ella, however, had no plans to make her final peace with God or die in the clouds.  She had a battle to conduct on the ground, after she'd cleared baggage claim at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
The Plane lurched and a baby screamed.  
Eyes closed, Ella inhaled through the heartburn that had stalked her since Felix's text had dinged over the flight attendant's directive to power off electronic devices.  Delivered with perfect timing--no possibility of retaliation--her husband's message had been a  deceleration of war.  Signed without a kiss.

My Book:


Should I keep reading?
What do you think?
