THE BRAKES IN MY CAR SMELL LIKE BURNING.?

2007 Peugeot 307 • 2WD Manual •

This morning I took a short journey to drop my step-daughter at school. When I returned home I could smell a burning smell- which seemed to becoming from my rear passenger side wheel. The smell wasn't too strong but it was noticeable. When I investigated further- by putting my hand near the brakes- I could feel heat. I threw some snow onto it & it melted immediatetly. However, when I drove to work much later much later on, there was no smell of burning & the brakes did not seem to be so hot. I've booked the car into the garage but they can't see the car until January 4th.

Anyone have any idea what could be going on?

Thanks
