That's the Brakes?

I just had my brakes repaired in March. They have been fine until recently. Sometimes when I brake my 2005 Toyota Corolla, There is a rubbing sound. When I accelerate after stopping, it sounds like the brake is slowly releasing from the wheel) I can hear the wheel rotating. When I brake after that. nothing happens. Its normal braking action. Any pearls of wisdom?

What exactly did they repair?

What was repaired was the disk brake rotor, brake pads, new brake shoes, and i was charged for a drum hardware kit. I assume the Brakes and Rotor were replaced.

They should offer a free checkup to identify problems. It may be a sticking caliper.
