My 2nd novel has 18,000 more words but is 8 pages shorter?

My 2nd novel has 18,000 more words but is 8 pages shorter? Please help me solve this mystery!

 

Both are formatted the same, since they are a series... Garamond 12, single spacing, no gutter, same margin size and paper size, same header/chapter title spacing. It is quite baffling.

As with many, perhaps most, of the problems reported here, your space problem was likely a headspace problem -- in your case, failure to enforce consistency throughout a document.
