2003 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

I recently had my brakes serviced all around. Today I noticed when I stopped a strong smell was coming into the car. It got stronger when I took my foot off the brake and began moving. When I got home I checked around the car and found that the smell was coming from my right rear wheel and and a unusual amount of heat ( compared to the other 3 wheels) was coming from it too. The smell wasn't exactly like burning rubber and I checked tire to see if there was anything unusual and there was not. Could my rear brake not be releasing completely when I take my foot off of the pedal?
