Missing Commas & Full Stops

Hi Everyone and Happy New Year,

I wonder if anyone can help?

I have an E-book that I am proof-reading and I am finding that there appears to be a lot of missing commas and full stops before a closing quotation mark.

e.g. ‘Sorry’ I said. - ‘There are ways and means’

Should be: ‘Sorry,’ I said. - ‘There are ways and means.’

Is there a regex formula that could identify/isolate these incidents?

I have checked for previous threads but couldn't find anything.

I have been doing it manually, but if I'm reading late at night I still miss quite a few.

Any help/advice greatly appreciated.
