Don't try this on any copy you want to be usable after you are done,

BUT YOU WERE WARNED that there are other valid things between the closing </p> and the Next <p> that should not be removed: The list is big, so I am not wasting my time typing it.
Because it's highlighting/selecting the p tags, just change the replace to </p>\n<p>

Overall problem - The way I'd do it, is convert in calibre to txtz->textile output, the convert that back to epub.
keeping copies of original just in case.
