Continuation of a sentence after a question mark and closing dialogue


I am unsure how to continue after a question mark in dialogue, for example:-


"Are you sure?" she asked, surprised at his demeanour.


Grammarly wants a capital S for the start of a sentence, but this is not the start of a sentence.

You always start the beginning of a quote with a capital letter, unless it is a continuation of the quote in the sentence, for e.g.:


"Are you sure? I mean, if that's what you really want," she said, surprised, "then I can't stop you."
