Novel ferroelectric bismuth vanadate, {Bi_2VO_{5.5}} (BVO), thin films have been grown between lattice matched metallic {LaNiO_3} (LNO) layers deposited on {SrTiO_3} (STO) by the pulsed laser deposition technique. LNO/BVO/LNO/STO and Au/BVO/LNO/STO trilayer structures exhibited c-oriented (001) growth of BVO. LNO has been found to be a good metallic electrode with sheet resistance {\sim \Omega 20} in addition to aiding c-axis oriented BVO growth. The dielectric constant, {\epsilon_r} of LNO/BVO/LNO/STO, at 300 K was about 12. However, when an Au electrode was used on top of BVO/LNO/STO film, it showed a significant improvement in the dielectric constant {(\epsilon_r = 123)}. The ferroelectric properties of BVO thin films have been confirmed by hysteresis behavior with a remnant polarization, {P_r - 4.6×10^{-8} C/cm^2} and coercive field, {E_c = 23 kV/cm} at 300 K.
