There are commercial ePub editors such as Jutoh and AWP that you could give a try.

Alternatively, you could have a look at the source code in Sigil. Open one of your ePubs with Sigil and have a look at a typical paragraph in Code View.

It should look like this:

Code:
<p class="calibre3">It was a dark and stormy night...</p>
Note the class name (in this example, calibre3). Then open the stylesheet and look at the corresponding definitions in the .css file :

.calibre3 {
display: block;
margin-bottom: 1em;
margin-left: 0;
margin-right: 0;
margin-top: 1em;
text-align: justify;
text-indent: 0
}

The lines marked in red control paragraph spacing. Simply reduce the values to get the paragraph spacing that you want.
While you're at it also press F8 to check the metadata and update them as needed.
